Abstract. One of the most effective ways to control the rate of
illegal exploitation and illegal fishing in order to maintain the
sustainability of marine resources in Kei Islands, Indonesia, is by using the
custom way of life and local wisdom approach. The indigenous communal right of
the sea is one of the traditional rights that is still strongly used to manage
the exploitation of certain parts of the seas in the region. The purpose of the
study is to map the economic value, the rate of fish exploitation and the type
of fish species in the indigenous communal seas. The aim is a better
understanding of marine resources in 22 indigenous communal seas, providing a significant
input for local government that can be used in further policies to maintain the
sustainability of marine resources in Kei Islands. Given the large number of
the dataset used, with over 3000 samples, based on a one-year survey from June
2017 to June 2018, the integration of data mining and spatial analysis is
useful for a better understanding of our findings. The result of the study
provides significant input for the local government, which can consider the
application of marine protected areas (MPA) to preserve the marine resources,
and creating programs to increase the welfare of coastal communities.


Key Words: coastal communities, Kei Islands, MPA.
