Sustainable catching analysis of cakalang (Katsuwonus pelamis) in Pantar strait waters, Alor Regency East Nusa Tenggara Province


Author(s): Efrin A Dollu and Rahman Muksin

Abstract: Decreased catches and changes in the composition of natural resources have pushed the ministry to make efficiency efforts in the form of increasing shipbuilding, capture technology, and fishing assistance tools which are in common aimed at increasing fishing capacity. The purpose of this study was to determine the maximum catch of skipjack (Katsuwonus pelamis), to find out the optimum efforts in the utilization of skipjack (Katsuwonus pelamis) and formulate the relationship between maximum catch and optimum utilization of skipjack (Katsuwonus pelamis) in the Pantar strait waters and surrounding data. The procedure for collecting data in this study is in the form of capture data for 9 (nine) years, namely from 2006, 2007, 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012, 2013 and 2014. Analysis of the data used is the calculation of surplus production in the form of catch of business unit or CPUE (catch per unit effor), analysis of the alleged sustainable potential of MSY (Maximum Sustainable Yield), namely to find out the potential for sustainable potential, analysis of catches allowed for Total Allowableatch (TAC) or (JTB) and calculation for utilization opportunities and development opportunities. The results showed that the catch per unit effort (CPUE) was at position 219.3, namely in 2011 with a total production of 73.1 tons / kg and the lowest catch at the position of 49.59 i.e. in 2006 with a total production of 7, 08 ton / kg. The maximum sustainable catch (MSY) based on the Schaefer model obtained a value of 33.33 tons, the average utilization rate from 2006 to 2014 obtained a value of 3.89%. The total catch allowed by Total Allowable Catch (TAC) is 19.19%.
