The utilization of long jawed mackerel resources must be based on economic and biological aspects as well as planning a sustainable use of long jawed mackerel. This study aims to analyze the conditions, efforts, and actual production of bloating fishing activities that are sustainable and optimal in Indramayu, as well as providing input into the direction of appropriate input and output management in bloating fishing activities in Indramayu Regency.

The results of the study found that the recommended fishing effort was in Maximum Sustainable Yield (MSY) 100.061 trip conditions and total production of 9011 tons, Maximum Economic Yield (MEY) conditions 98.756 trips and total production of 9.009 tons, and Open Access (OA) conditions in 197.513 trips and total production of 4.638 tons.
