As a country with enormous fisheries resources, Indonesia face threats to sustainability of the resources which are suspected because of the implementation of fisheries subsidies that did not consider the resources. On the other side, government provide subsidies to alleviate poverty and improve fishermen’s welfare. A number of countries, especially developed countries encourage the elimination of fisheries subsidies through WTO and other countries, especially developing countries opposed the proposal of the developed countries. Nevertheless, it is necessary to make a balance between community development and environmental protection in case of fisheries subsidies. This study reviews the implementation of fisheries subsidies in Indonesia. The research is based on a literacy study along with data and information on fishery subsidies that have been carried out so far by the Ministry of Marine Affairs and Fisheries as an authorized government agency. The results of the study indicate that there are benefits from providing subsidies to the welfare of fishermen and also support the sustainability of fisheries resources.
