Abstract: The Bay of Piru is one of potential fisheries resources of Western Seram District. Extensive mangrove, sea grass bed and coral reefs ecosystem were found in this area, contributing a lot on it productivity. Among many fish resources found there, the mud crab of Scylla serrata was one of the resources extensively exploited by local fisher of Pelita Jaya and its vicinity area. High demand on mud crab, high price, and high economy dependence of local fisher has influence the fisher to exploit the resources in unsustainable ways for over than 20 years that lead to resources degradation. The study was aimed to investigate the status of mud crab fishery and the effect attributed to the status then gives some recommendations for the management. The result shows that majority of mud crab captured was small to medium carapace width, of female mud crab harvested, 95% were in their reproductive status, the sex ratio was very between month but in average was almost equal (p< 0.05). The Pelita Jaya people were mainly elementary school graduated with relatively low level of environmental knowledge on sustainable natural resources management. Institutional aspect on natural resources management was also poor. Management on size captured, reproductive status, pot mesh size, and sanctuary side agreement should be implemented soon.
