Samosir Technopark which is developed by the Indonesian science institute (LIPI) and the Samosir regional government of North Sumatra which was officially inaugurated on June 30, 2015 isfocused on the fishery and water resources. Generally, Technopark is an economic, social and culture development area that has knowledge and innovation center, productive activity and people’s movement that support the acceleration ofdevelopment and innovation, diffusion and study . Samosir Technopark that is situated in Janji Martahan village, Pangururan subdistrict, Samosir Regency, North Sumatra, becomes a pilot project for technopark management . According to LIPI Head, Iskandar Zulkarnain, until today Samosir Technopark is able toproduce 2.4 million gold fish which increase from 10 thousand gold fish from the previousyear . The Samosir technopark, was previously became fish seeds center that has lack attention from the local government. The condition caused the local fish farmershave difficulties to get fish seeds supply . In fact fish farmer often import fish seeds from other area such as from Pematang Siantar and Dairi which then effected to the increasing price of fish .
By using dome technology that works like glass house effect, LIPI can increase gold fish seeds production in Samosir Technopark until 25.000 percent .According to the Head of Limnology research center of LIPI, Fauzan Ali the reason why the dome technology is chosen, it is because the difference of water temperature between night and day is very extreme . Whereas, the fish seeds can only develop in a stable temperature .
Besides the change extreme temperature, Samosir technopark also face hard wind that instantly strike . The wind also effected the fish seeds which are developed on the outdoor ponds . The Polycarbonate dome technology and steel frame that is designedin many forms, is able to make water temperature stable and wind can not interrupting the pond . LIPI is belived to build technopark in seven locations and one science park . The development of the park is concentrated in Mataram West Lombok, Southeast Maluku, Ternate, Samosir, Enrekang and Tasikmalaya . While the science park is builtin Bogor . The technopark development is fully attached with LIPI competency in building fishery, farming, plantation, agriculture and maritime development in Indonesia .
