This research was conducted in Cicendo District, Bandung City, West Java. To analyze factors that influence changes in fish consumers behaviour and preference before the COVID-19 pandemic. Case study with quantitative and qualitative data analysis was employed and an accidental sampling technique method using 100 respondents. The results showed changes in factors during the COVID-19 pandemic are the system and place of purchase, the frequency of fish consumption, the amount of consumption of fish and products consumed, and the price of fish. Based on binary logistic regression analysis, before and after the Covid-19 pandemic, the Wald test showed that income, education and age variables had an influence on preferences between fresh fish and processed fish. Preferences between fresh freshwater fish and marine fish before and after the COVID-19 pandemic, the Wald test shows that employment and income variables have an influence.

Indonesia is a country that has very wide sea waters and has abundant resources. The quality of the waters must be maintained, especially from marine debris (MD) contaminants. This article aims to explain the classification, movement, and impact of marine debris on the aquatic environment. From various studies, it was found that MD in Indonesian waters is grouped into macro and micro sizes. The movement of MD in waters is influenced by tides, currents, and wind speed. MD greatly impacts the ecosystem in aquatic habitats especially mangroves. The purpose of this article is to review of marine debris in Indonesian waters.

Squid (Loligo sp.) is one of the marine fishery commodities that abundant in resources and valuable economically in Indonesia. To increase the economic value of food, processing activities are needed, steaming is one of them. Processing activities using high temperatures are suspected to affect the composition of flavor compounds in fishery products. Flavor volatile are components that act as aroma, the initial impression (top notes), and evaporate easily. This research is to study and identify volatile compounds composition found in steamed squid. The squid was taken from Indramayu, West Java, subsequently the sample preparation was conducted at the Laboratory of Fishery Processing Technology, Faculty of Fisheries and Marine Science, Universitas Padjajaran. Volatile components were analyzed at Flavor Laboratory, Indonesian Center for Rice Research, Sukamandi, Subang from February to April 2021. Volatile compounds were analyzed using Gas Chromatography / Mass Spectrometry (GC / MS) with an extraction temperature of 80ºC in 45 minutes (Solid Phase Micro Extraction). The proximate analysis was analyzed at Inter-University Centre Laboratory, Bogor Agricultural Institute. The volatile compound analysis successfully detected 30 compounds in the steamed squid sample. The proximate analysis showed steamed squid contained 74.99% water content, 1.49% ash, 2.09% fat, and 21.12% protein.

This study aims to analyze the large income disparity in coastal and non-coastal areas in Banten Province and to analyze whether the fisheries sub-sector has become the economic base in Banten Province in 2015 – 2019. January until May 2021. The method is carried out by survey method then analyzed quantitatively and presented descriptively. The data of this study were sourced from secondary data and primary data. Data were obtained from BPS Banten Province, BPS West Java Province, Marine and Fisheries Service Banten Province, Marine and Fisheries Service West Java Province and through questionnaires from coastal and non-coastal communities. Data analysis includes analysis of Williamson index, Gini coefficient and Location Quotient (LQ). based on the results of research conducted, it can be concluded that the income disparity in the coastal areas of Banten Province is greater than in the non-coastal areas. The Gini ratio analysis shows that the value of the Gini ratio has decreased from year to year, which means that income distribution is more evenly distributed until in 2019 it reaches 0. The fisheries sector in Banten Province is included in the non-base sector because it has a value of 0.5671. Production of catch commodities that get superior commodities: small pelagic fish group (mean LQ=1.81) and demersal fish group (mean LQ=0.84). The fisheries sector in Banten Province is included in the non-base sector because it has a value of 0.5671.

This study aims to analyze the effect of red paprika flour in fish feed to increase the color intensity of the Comet fish juvenile. The research method used a Complete Randomized Design experiment consist of four treatments and three replicates. The treatments consisted of various levels of addition red pepper extract, namely treatment A (0%), B (3%), C (5%) and D (7%). The investigation includes color intensity of the fish. Survival rate and water quality parameters data were also taken. The color observation data were analyzed using the Kruskal-Wallis analysis, if there was a significant difference, the Z test was performed. The results of this study indicated that the addition of 5% red paprika extract to the feed was the best treatment with an increase in the color intensity level of comet fish at 4.71. While the comet fish Survival Rate (SR) data in all treatments were observed to be 100% and the water quality during the maintenance period was in the optimal range and met the standards. The average temperature value was 24.7-26.4ºC, DO 5.6-5.8 mg/L and pH 6.67-7.53.
