The types of charting gear being utilized by fisher in Palabuhanratu Bay are improving over time. From the raft lift-nets to the boat charting equipment. According to local authorization in fish gathering or PPI, the number of chart fishing gear in Palabuhanratu Bay is around 500 pieces in 2019. The goals of this study are to analyze the spatial distribution of lift net fishing devices during the dry and rainy months and determine the oceanographic features that are might influencing the spread. Some oceanographic parameters being employed include sea surface salinity, sea surface temperature (SST), water current, water depth, and chlorophyll-a concentration. This study uses images from the Google Earth application to mark the location of the lift net fishing devices. Additional satellite imageries from Landsat 8 OLI-TIRS sensors were applied to generate sea surface salinity, SST, and chlorophyll-a maps. The lift net fishing devices are mostly distributed in shallow water (water depth between 40 to 100 meters). The chlorophyll-a concentration, sea surface salinity, SST, and water depth the most significant oceanographic features influencing the number of lift net fishing devices during both seasons (dry and rainy months).
