Low carbon development has become a trendsetter in this millennial era. The social and economic factors of the community are commonly used variables in assessing linear functions of the level of social welfare. The level of social welfare is then thought to be one of the main drivers of anthropogenic pressure on the environment. We examine the extent to which social and economic aspects of capture fisheries activities influence the dynamics of CO2 emissions generated from capture fisheries activities in all coastal areas in West Java Province during the 2007-2016 period. Based on the results of geographic information system and statistical analysis, we find that the increasing economic factor can reduce the ghg emission while the increasing of social factor on the contrary can increase the ghg emission. The GIS analysis also show that the level of CO2 emissions was found to be lower in districts that had relatively high levels of social index. It is estimated, the higher level of education and social welfare has a real positive correlation with increasing public awareness in conducting fishing activities that are environmentally friendly and carbon friendly.
