Small Island Expedition Ala Himafarin IPB University


Student Association for the Utilization of Fisheries Resources (Himafarin), Faculty of Fisheries and Marine Sciences (FPIK), IPB University is one of the professional associations that has a variety of activities including expeditions to small island areas to empower the community, implement innovations, exploration, and survey potential areas related to fisheries catch it.

The expedition, often known as the Expedition of Fisherman Friends (EFF), is routinely carried out by Himafarin every year. "EFF activities are carried out as a form of community service for Himafarin as a friend of fishermen," said Fikri Kurniawan as Chair of Himafarin FPIK IPB University in 2018/2019.

Himafarin was also active in holding talkshows and competitions with the theme of capture fisheries. The activity was packaged in the form of a festival called the National Capture Fisheries Festival (Festanas). Festanas activities are held to explore creativity, innovation, and assessment of current issues in the field of capture fisheries.

Fikri claimed that his participation in Himafarin brought many benefits. Examples such as increasing soft skills in organization, learning to work in teams and adding relationships.

"Becoming an administrator of a professional association that has the jargon 'we want you to be one of us, to help the fishermen and to feed the hungry world' gives me a real experience to jump right in the middle of a fisherman's life. in order to educate fishermen about important things that the management of Himafarin learned during the lecture," concluded Fikri.
