        Abstract

        Pulokerto Area is a buffer zone area at the upstream region of Palembang city and serves as a water catchment area, as well as the support of green open spaces of the city. Palembang City government plans to change the use of area as an eco-tourism. This study aims to inventory the biodiversity of fish in the waters around the Pulokerto area as environmental indicators for policy making in the area due to land use change. Data were collected from three stations (using a 100 m mounted gillnets by fisherman in the water’s edge at about 2 m depth). The gill nets were installed a night before, lasting for about 9 hours. Fish were collected in the range of 2-4 hours depending on the fishermen habits. The fish abundance was calculated by the method of catch per unit of effort and diversity index was calculated using Shannon diversity index. The results showed that of the three stations, 33 species of fish within 18 families and a total abundance 763 were recorded, dominated by Cyprinidae (10 species). Species diversity values ranged from 1.66 to 2.98, indicate a relatively good conditions. The quality of water is also relative good based on the state laws. The number of catch per unit effort in station I (3 times repeated): 39 individu (weight 1.33 kg); 63 individu (weight 0.56 kg) and 165 individu (weight 1.56 kg). Station II with only one time effort, recorded 64 individuals (0.06 kg weight). While on station III with three times efforts recorded respectively 53 (weight 0.79 kg); 219 (weight 3.03 kg) and 160 individu (weight 4.97 kg). The total of fish over 9 hours of installation gillnet found at station III (432 individuals weighing 8.79 kg) followed by station I (267 individuals weighing 3.45 kg) and station II (64 individuals weighing 0.06 kg). The study concluded that the fish diversity in the waters of the study area is still relatively well supported by water quality. Facilitation by the governments is needed to foster the fishermen to increase their income.
