The goal of this study was to determine the utilization level of anchovy resources in Perairan Karang Jeruk after being designated as a fisheries reserve conservation area. The CYP algorithm approach was used as a bioeconomic analysis. This study was conducted in November 2019 – January 2020. The results showed that the intrinsic growth rate of anchovies (r) was 1.803 tons/year, the capture coefficients (q) was 0.000506 tons/trip, and the environment supporting capacity (K) amounting to 1501.67 tons/year, cost (c) of 0.27 million/trip and price (p) of 8.73 million/ton. MSY efforts (EMSY) amounted to 1780.42 with maximum production (hMSY) of 676.80 tons/year. MEY (EMEY) efforts amounted to 1694.14 with maximum production (hMEY) of 675.21 tons/year. The utilization of fisheries resources activities shows more capture, both biologically and economically. Policy recommendations that can be applied from the results of the study are that business/effort limitations need to be made to 2416 – 2539 trip/year for payang fishing gear and 1489 – 1565 for Mini Purse Seine fishing gear. The implementation of the quota system on the Total Allowable Catch (TAC) basis for payang fishing gear is 65.52 tons/year, while the mini purse seine fishing gear is 475.92 tons/year.
