Fixed lift net fisheries in Banten Bay used compact fluorescent lamp (CFL) since the middle of 2000 for replacement
the traditional pressured kerosene lantern. It was increased the light intensity, but this lamps consumed high energy and fuels.
Application of light emitting diode (LED) is considered to energy saving and increased catches in lift net fisheries. The
fishing trial was conducted on 22 May-16 June 2015 in Banten Bay Indonesia using 2 units of lift net with 6 units of CFL and
LED respectively. The result shows both lamps did not have significant effect on total catches. Meanwhile, application of
LED lamps has significant effect to main catch (anchovy). There were increasing catch weight of anchovy with mean 29.49%.
LED also decreased of fuel consumption with mean saving 35.15%. It is evident enough to conclude that LED lamps have
high efficiency and effectiveness for lift net fishing in Banten Bay.
