CPUE, MSY, TAC, Fishing Capacity, Kema 2


Capture fisheries should be a sustainable economic activity aspect to provide good benefits to future resources. Sustainable marine fisheries resources exploitation requires a utilization rate lower than their availability. Therefore, the exploitation rate should not achieve the recovery ability of the resources in certain time. In fishing activities, for instance, there is a guideline not to catch fish over the Total Allowable Catch (TAC), 80% of the MSY. Information on the potency and the fishing capacity of tuna fisheries can be useful for the sustainable management of the resources. Also, this information can be used as a consideration for further management of the potency. There are two purposes of the study: (1) to analyze the CPUE (catch per unit effort) of demersal fisheries in Kema 2, North Sulawesi, for prediction of their potency, and (2) to analyze the efficiency of fishing capacity of the demersal fisheries in Kema 2, The study was done in two stages. The first was done by analyzing the potency using CPUE method (Shaefer models) to obtain the MSY, optimum effort and TAC (total allowable catch); and the second was done by analyzing the fishing capacity of demersal fisheries using DEA method to estimate the efficiency level of the fishing boats and devices in Kema 2. The result showed that the potency of demersal fisheries in Kema 2 was 71,700 tons per year and the optimum effort was 72,964 trips. Fishing capacity in demersal fisheries occurred in Kema 2 for the last 12 years was inefficient, especially for 2001. This may be caused by some factors such as trip operation, fishing duration, oil consumption, crew and operational cost. So, to manage the demersal resources in Kema 2, the TAC should be 57,520 tons per year. Based on the result, to increase the fishing efficiency, we should take into account of above factors. We suppose that the good means is reducing trip operation, fishing duration, oil consumption, crew and operational cost.
