Abstract

This study aims to analyze the economic value of small pelagic fishing fisheries in Indramayu Regency, West Java. This research was conducted by a survey method using a questionnaire with a purposive sampling method and the data were analyzed descriptively quantitative and qualitative. The benefits of the results of this study are expected to provide information for decision making for the relevant government in formulating policies on fisheries activities, especially small pelagic fish in Indramayu Regency West Java so that they remain sustainable. Catching small pelagic fish is done by purse seine, mini purse seine, Millenium gill net, fishing line, and nylon net. The majority of the ship size used ships with sizes below 20 Gross Tonnage (GT). The types of small pelagic fish caught are Anchovy, Mackerel, Long Jawed Mackerel, Sardine, Scad, Sand Whiting, Tanjan Fish, Rucah Fish and Japuh Fish. The highest acceptance value of small pelagic fish in 2019 is found in anchovies, which is 8.997 billion. So that the highest profit of the highest small pelagic fish obtained in 2019 is found in Anchovy, amounting to 8,780 billion. The Benefit-Cost Ratio (BCR) calculation shows that the BCR value for catching pelagic fish species above is> 1 so that the fishing activity is feasible and can be continued. 99.7% of small pelagic fishing activities are influenced by the GT of the ship, the number of trips (months), and the fishing gear based on the calculation of multiple linear regression analysis.
