An Environmentally Friendly Fisheries Resource Use Pattern in Pangandaran Based on Its Bioecoregional Conditions (A Case Study in Pangandaran, West Java Province, Indonesia)

Coastal development in Pangandaran West Java Province can be carried out through optimization of the fisheries resources potential and is expected to bring about prosperity to the local communities. The potential can be associated with the premise of unique favorable bioecoregional condition, where fisheries industry may grow side by side with the marine tourism. This research aims to determine an environmentally friendly fisheries use pattern for Pangandaran, considering the bioecoregional condition and factors influencing the economic value that can be generated through fisheries exploitation. The research follows a case study methodological framework supported by data collected through a cluster random sampling technique. Primary data were collected through interviews with respondents which included 20 fishermen and 15 traders; secondary data in the meantime were gathered from documented information available at relevant institutions. The primary analytical tools are quantitative descriptive and multiple linear regression. Based on the research, it can be concluded that considering the bioecoregional condition, fisheries development can be done by focusing on a number of economic species including Colossoma macropomum, Metapenaeus monoceros, Trichiurus lepturus, Scomberomorini, Katsuwonus pelamis, Thunnus Albacares. In line with this, important factors that should be taken care of these are fishing season, types of fishing gear, type of vesse sizel, operational production time, fishing experience, amount crew, resources of capital and zoning distance fishing.
