This research aims to determine the impact of the implementation of Marine Protected Areas (MPAs) on Indonesia’s ocean at the catch per unit effort (CPUE) level. Data from 2006 to 2016 from three MPAs and regencies (Kepulauan Anambas, Kabupaten Padang Pariaman, and Kabupaten Berau) are collected, and two inferential statistical methods (mean difference (MD) testing and panel data regression) are used for analysis. In this case, the impact of MPA is captured by comparing the sign and significance of variables denoting whether the regency has an MPA or not. This research concludes that MPA establishment, in general, results in a higher CPUE. This research is important for fishermen and fishery firms as well as other stakeholders in terms of the future use of these areas.
