The sustainability of demersal fisheries management is very important in the Madura Strait. This study aims to determine the indicators that affect sustainability in the dimensions of economic, social, technological ethics, biology and demersal fish resources in the Madura Strait. This research was conducted in the cities of Probolinggo, Pasuruan, Sampang and Pamekasan in 2020. A multi-disciplinary approach using Multi-dimensional Scaling (MDS) and modification of RAPFISH was carried out in this study. In general, the sustainability status of the Madura Strait demersal fishery is poor, with an average sustainability index of 58.31%. Therefore, strategic steps are needed to direct capture fisheries in the future to be more responsible and sustainable.
