Sustainability Analysis of Fish Resources and Fishing Technology at Palabuhanratu Nusantara Fishing Port, West Java, Indonesia

Author(s): Dita Agustian


The domain of fish resources and fishing technology has several aspects that can be used as indicators of overfishing in a certain water area. It is very important to know in fisheries management so that the process can run optimally and sustainably. This study uses EAFM as a tool to assess the sustainability of fish resources and fishing technology in Palabuhanratu Nusantara Fishing Port. The data were obtained from interviews and questionnaires given to fishermen representing the capacity and size of their vessels. The results show that in the fish resource domain, there are two indicators that have low sustainability values, namely the Catch per Unit Effort (CpUE) and the proportion of juvenile fish. While in the domain of fishing technology, indicators that have less sustainability value are modification of fishing gear and fishery capacity. The low values of these four indicators indicate that there is a tendency for overfishing around these waters so that control efforts are needed to be more sustainable.
