Blue (Carbon) Accounting in Activity Patorani : Is That Important for Sustainability?
Proceedings of the Brawijaya International Conference on Multidisciplinary Sciences and Technology (BICMST 2020)
This article aims to provide an understanding of the practice of carbon accounting at sea originating from the activity of flying fish fishermen (patorani). Sustainability theory provides a theoretical framework for the analysis of this interdisciplinary research. Literature review and data collection (dialogue, observation, and documentation) support the development of environmental accounting that contributes to the practice of sustainability. Researchers used qualitative methods with
... ethods with interpretive paradigms and ethnomethodology approaches. Patorani use ships with having 3 (three) machines. Calculation of time, distance, and fuel oil can minimize carbon pollution generated by ship engines. The use of ship engines produces carbon emissions of 1.567,128 TonCO2e / season. Blue accounting (carbon) as an accountability process plays an important role in maintaining the sustainability of the sea and air in Indonesia, as well as contributing to the reduction/increase in global warming. Researchers have limited time and money due to the breadth of Indonesian waters. Finally, this article recommends to the relevant parties, especially the Ministry of Maritime Affairs and Fisheries of the Republic of Indonesia to exercise strict control over carbon. The article offers an item in reporting the use of carbon in the ocean which can be initiated through ministerial or regional regulations
