Increase of fishing activities in Indonesian waters tends to lead in overfishing. Conservation efforts are needed to save the sustainability of fish resources. Fishermen who directly related to the sea have an important role in the implementation of fish resources conservation. This article is aimed to analyze the implementation level of the conservation of fish resources done by the fishermen; which further separated in the category of fish resources protection activities; preservation of fish resources, and sustainable utilization of fish resources. The design of the study is explanatory research using a quantitative approach. The population were traditional fishermen in the Palabuhanratu Village, District of Palabuhanratu, Sukabumi, West Java, Indonesia. Respondents of 75 people were chosen randomly from total of 3,900 people in such village. Data were collected using survey method, and presented in the form of frequency tables and descriptions, and analyzed descriptively. The results indicated that the level of protection of fish resources was in the moderate category; the fishermen have had efforts to protect fish resources although the implementation was not optimum. The level of conservation of fish resources was categorized as high, e.g. traditional fishermen have understood well that the fish resources need to be conserved properly to keep the fish resources can be harvested in a long time. Also, the level of sustainable utilization of fish resource was categorized as high, as confirmed by the absence of fishermen who use environmental-destructive fishing gear.
