The policy to prohibit cantrang fishing gear is intended to prevent excessive exploitation of fish resources, environmental degradation and conflicts between fisherman, but fisherman and government officers' perceptions of the policy are not the same. The purpose of this study was to analyze the perceptions of fisherman and government officer on the implementation of the prohibition of cantrang fishing gear policy in Lampung Bay. Data collection was carried out by interviewing 30 fishermen and 30 government officers. The data obtained were analyzed using a Likert Scale and polarized between the perceptions of fisherman and government officers. The results showed that fisherman's perceptions of the successful implementation of cantrang fishing gear prohibition policies were influenced by the attitude of the implementers and the inaccurate standards and policy targets/policy size and objectives. This is following the fisherman's refusal to prohibit cantrang fishing gear policy by continuing to operationalize cantrang fishing gear. The perception of the government apparatus the high influence of the economic, social and political environment influences the successful implementation of cantrang fishing gear prohibition policies. Perceptions between fisherman and government officers who are not in harmony cause the failure of the cantrang fishing gear prohibition policy in Lampung Bay. Thus it is necessary to review the policy of prohibiting fishing gear cantrang and strategic steps for its implementation. Keywords: policy, policy implementation, cantrang, perception, Lampung Bay 1.
