“Sink it” became a national catchphrase after Indonesia’s maverick Minister of Maritime Affairs and Fisheries fulfilled her threat to sink any foreign boats found illegally fishing in Indonesian waters. In 2017 she ordered the sinking of around 87 illegal boats. Ibu Susi will reflect on her fight to protect the country’s millions of fishers and vast marine resources.

“Tenggelamkan” telah menjadi frasa yang populer secara nasional setelah Menteri ini benar-benar memenuhi ancamannya untuk menenggelamkan kapal-kapal yang melintas dan melakukan penangkapan ikan secara ilegal di perairan Indonesia. Pada tahun 2017, ia memerintahkan anak buahnya untuk menenggelamkan sekitar 87 kapal ilegal. Ketegasaan Ibu Susi tercermin dari perjuangannya melindungi sumber daya laut dan jutaan nelayan di negara ini.
