The researchers studying data from 24 expedition ships that sailed around the world for six years revealed that there are already 269,000 tons of plastic pollutants in the ocean. Assorted plastic pollutants such as shopping bags, bottles, bottle caps, toys, pacifiers, toothbrushes, boots, buckets, umbrella handles, fishing poles, and even toilet seats have entered the ocean.
Research suggests 92% of the plastic arrives in the form of microplastic particles – which originate from larger objects which breakdown due to sunlight and are torn or split into pieces by the waves, sharks, and other fish. In recent years the experts have expressed their concern about how plastic pollutants kill many sea birds, marinemammals, and other creatures by tarnishing marine ecosystems. Plastic goods such as fish nets have trapped and killed dolphins, sea turtles, and other animals. The researchers say the plastic waste enters into the sea from rivers and densely populated coastal areas and shipping lanes.
Bigger plastic goods found in abundance along the shoreline often float into five subtropical strands of the world - a large area of rotating currents in the North and South Pacific, North and South Atlantic, and Indian oceans. According to the data based on expeditions to the five subtropical strands, coastal Australia, the Bay of Bengal, and the Mediterranean Sea, there is an estimated 5.25 trillion particles of plastic waste.

The Coordinating Minister for Maritime Affairs states that Indonesia’s ornamental fish have the potential to contribute as much as 1.5 billion US dollars to the country. However, this has not been optimized, so that Indonesia as a maritime country is not able to compete with Singapore and Spain.
Hence, the government has encouraged all stakeholders to take part in the development of ornamental fish, to be able to have a competitive edge in export. Nevertheless, exporters are obliged to use certain flights to sell their goods overseas, such as Garuda Indonesia, which set higher airfares than other airlines. Coordination with other ministries, such as the Ministry of Transportation, is therefore necessary to overcome the problem.
Besides, the Coordinating Minister for Maritime Affairs has requested all the ministries to have ornamental fish in their buildings. TheMinister hopes that theMinister of Tourism also recommends that hotels have ornamental fish in aquariums, fish ponds, etc., to decorate their hotels. As a result, the cultivation of freshwater and seawater ornamental fish can grow and the business can be more fascinating.

Gutaperca, a very rare plant in the world, has a high economic value. A cultivator of the plant, PTPN VIII Sukamaju, Sukabumi, has exported the leaves to as far as European countries. The leaves of gutaperca are used as the main ingredient of dental stuff, such as bones and artificial teeth, and golf balls. Therefore, a number of European manufacturies regularly place a request on the leaves.
The price of a kilo of gutaperca leaves is quite high, up to 300 US dollars. This is resulted fromthe fact that the plant is difficult to find and the good quality of processed leaves as a basic material used in the production of false teeth and bones, as well as golf balls cannot yet be replaced by any othermaterial.
Eachmonth, PTPN VIII exports only 50–100 kg of gutaperca leaves because the production rate of the leaves is still very low, and yielding the leaves too early, before the time to harvest, can harmthe plant and reduce the production. PTPN VIII Sukamaju cultivates gutaperca on a land of 282 hectares.
In addition, this plant has been used as an object of research and in education in that there have been a lot of domestic and foreign researchers from different universities coming to conduct research on the plant that only grows in the Sukabumi Regency. Although it actually originated from Brazil, but can no longer be found in that country.
