The availability of ice factory in fishing port area specifically in Kuala Singkawang at the moment is very important and to be needed by fisherman. Small ice factory established by Government of Singkawang City at present is already operated and it produced ice cubes more than 8 ton at trial operation at that time. The quality of ice cubes produced by this factory was pretty good. It is hoped to be continued for the next production.
Ice cubes supplied from ice factory at the moment for fisherman in this fishing port is still dominated by one or two operators (distributor). Therefore the needs of ice cubes is very dependent by supplier which limited numbers. Since the operation this small ice factor located not far from the Fishing Port of Kuala Singkawang, most of the small fisherman is helpful.
