The aim of the research was to analyse the effect Marine Protected Area (MPA) to capture fisheries in Indonesia. The research method was regression data panel from 32 provinces in Indonesia during 2010-2014. The results show that MPA’s size/sea ratio gives a significant positive effect to capture fisheries production in Indonesia with elasticity value of 0.007. Beside MPA’s wide/sea ratio, other variable, namely number of fishing boat, number of fishing household, number of fishing gear and trip, also have the same positive impacts. The MPA’s size/sea ratio and other variable are inelastic with the decreasing return to scale condition.
