About Pandu Laut

On the first of April 2018, we launched Pandu Laut Nusantara in Pangandaran. Three months later,

on the 15th July 2018 we inaugurated this community in Jakarta.

Pandu Laut Nusantara (meaning the Nusantara or Archipelagic Sea Scouts) a community of people who believe in and want the sea to be the future of the nation, as these words are not just a slogan. We are not affiliated with any political party, ethnicity, or belief. We are open to anyone who volunteers and has a mutual awareness of protecting and caring for Indonesian seas.


We hope that small movements, education, campaigns, and even small actions can have a big impact in the future. We care for damaged marine ecosystems through mangrove conservation actions and beach clean-up actions.


We hope that the threat of marine biota extinction can be anticipated by the re-release of endangered species. We also hope the boat-sharing action can raise the welfare of small fishermen.


Pandu Laut/Sea Scouts are the eyes, ears and voice of the sea. Support our small steps

and join as protectors of Indonesian oceans.

Warmest Regards


Susi Pudjiastuti

Susi Pudjiastuti

Founder and CEO of Pandu Laut Nusantara

Susi founded Pandu Laut Nusantara in mid-2018. In August 2020, Susi directly led Pandu Laut as General Chairman/CEO.


The story of Susi and the sea began almost 40 years ago. Susi started as a fish trader in 1983 in Pangandaran.


The business, which originally began with Susi selling fish by bicycle, developed into a fish processing factory PT ASI Pudjiastuti Marine Product in 1996.


In 2014, Susi was entrusted with the role of Minister of Maritime Affairs and Fisheries in the Working Indonesian Cabinet of Joko Widodo and Jusuf Kalla. She is famous for the jargon of “Sink them”. During his tenure, a total of 558 fishing vessels were sunk, mainly foreign vessels.


Susi also prohibits the use of fishing gears that damage the environment, such as cantrang, drag nets and trawlers. The export of lobster seeds was also not allowed in the Susi Pudjiastuti era. These policies have received appreciation and awards at national and international levels.


Pandu Laut Nusantara is a forum initiated by Susi to continue campaigning for the sea as well the nation's future. Clean sea campaigns from plastic waste, mangrove conservation activities, saving rare biota, to ship-sharing actions are only a few of the programs carried out by Susi together with Pandu Laut Nusantara.
