River Commodities

River areas are dubbed as productive and activity-dense areas because they have diverse, potential and economic value. It is said to be a productive and dense area of activity because in this region a variety of industrial and human activities are developing rapidly such as: fisheries,
tourism, transportation, agriculture, mining and others. Commodities are increasing and varying along with the increasing human and industrial needs so that increasing pressure on the preservation of ecosystems and resources. The concern is the tendency of damage to river resources is caused more by exploitation practices that are not environmentally friendly, such as the use of heavy equipment exploration, fishing gear forbidden fisheries and excessive
agricultural processing. In addition to the potential of fishery resources, there is also a marine tourism area based on agricultural and fisheries culinary which is growing very rapidly.

The river tourism area is growing along with the support of basic and supporting facilities and infrastructures as well as human and industrial activities in the agriculture and fisheries sector, transportation, and other sectors that support each other and human needs for recreational
facilities.
