The productivity improvement through the economic and technique efficiency in order to maximize the benefit (productivity) could increase the prosperity of the fisherman. Variables used in this research are Gross Tonage of the fishing boat (GT), Engine Power (PK), main line length (m), a number of hook, the length of the line below sea surface (m), fishing ground distance (mile), number of setting per trip,experience of theboat crew, shipmaster experience, fuel allocation and work hour (h).
The research shows that the production factors that has significant effect on the fish catch of the hand line are, Gross Tonage of the fishing boat (GT) with the regression value was 0.636 and the t-test was 4.162 and a number of hook with the regression value was 0.492 and the t-test was 2.202. While for the other production factors show un significant effect on the fish catch of the hand line.
