Capture fisheries are one form of fishery resource utilization by fisher in the waters. With open access, fishers are free to catch fish in the waters. Yogyakarta waters are one of the waters with capture fisheries activities that continue to develop until now, especially on Bantul Regency. Fishers on Depok Beach are the largest and most developed communities in Bantul Regency. Sustainable fisheries resource management is formed in Yogyakarta waters by analyzing fishers' behavior on Depok Beach in fishing activities. Survey methods and participatory mapping were carried out to obtain fisher's characteristics, water conditions, fishing grounds locations, and fish catch variation. Statistical descriptive analysis, map overlays, and correlations are used in this study. The fishing community on Depok Beach is dominated by migrant fisher who come from Cilacap. Fishing activities are still very dependent on water conditions both during high and low seasons. Fishing grounds can be up to 10 miles in the high season, while the low season tends to be closer to land. The type of fish catch varies each month, dominated by demersal fish. Beltfish (Trichiurus lepturus) is a fish caught commodity during high and low seasons. Meanwhile, white pomfret (Pampus argenteus), banana prawn (Penaeus merguiensis), scalloped spiny lobster (Panulirus homorus) are mostly found in the high season, and mackerel tuna (Euthynnus affinis) in the low season.
