Round the World in 26 Days – Sulawesi

Created on Wednesday, 23 January 2019

Continuing from the previous post about Erin Taylor and Alanna Gisondo on their journey in Indonesia…

MDPI Director of Science and Programs, Deirdre Duggan, and MDPI programmer I Gede Sujana Eka Putra traveled with us to Sangihe Island in northern Sulawesi. There, we met with local fishermen and a supplier who have been using vessel tracking systems and a smartphone app, Trafiz, to electronically capture fisheries and business data at the point of landing.

We were fortunate to hear directly from the group about how the technology is impacting their lives – from feeling more safe out at sea to improved business tracking at the dock.
