Abstract

Utilization level of barramundi in Mimika Regency waters tend to increase every years, because the kind of fish had the high economical value. This condition usually could be trigger to use the environmental unfriendly fishing technology for increasing the catches. Development of the appropriate fishing technology in Mimika waters must consider the maximum sustainable yield (MSY) of barramundi resources, social, and economic aspects of fisherman. The objectives of this research were to explore the MSY of barramundi resources, to determine the development opportunity of barramundi fisheries, to explore the appropriate fishing technology of barramundi, and to determine the development strategy of barramundi fishing technology in Mimika Regency waters. The research method used was survey through experimental fishing activitiy. Data were analyzed with bioeconomic model, multicriteria analysis, and analitical hierarchy process approaches. The estimated MSY of barramundi in Mimika waters was 8,348 tons/year, and fishing effort was 970,122 trips/year. Development opportunity at MSY condition was 6,807 tons/year while at MEY management was 6,553 tons/year. The appropriate fishing technology for Barramundi fisheries in Mimika Regency was gillnet and handlne, but gillnet was more adventage than handline. The gillnet becomes main priority for developing with a strategy of fisherman empowerment, and cooperative among stakeholders for improving catch and fishermen income
