Open-access fisheries management is susceptible to overexploitation. Therefore, Marine Protected Areas (MPAs) have been increasingly seen as one of the most important tools for sustainable fisheries management. However, MPA still has a possibility to be overfished as MPA may attract fishermen to utilize the area excessively. This study focus on nine MPAs in Indonesia using secondary data collected from Ministry of Marine Affairs and Fisheries and Indonesia Statistic Center Agency from various years. This study used Schaefer and Fox model to measure the Maximum Sustainable Yield (MSY) as the basis to calculate overfishing index. Overfishing comparison analysis is done by mean difference t-test and panel data regression. The result revealed that MPA has lower fishing index compared to non-MPA. Also MPA establishment has negative and significant impact to overfishing index.
