The high market demand of mud crabs has led to increase the capture so that their availability in the wild is threatened. The purpose of this study was to determine the fishing pattern of mud crabs and analyze the environmentally friendly of mud crab catching units in Mojo mangrove ecosystem. Data analysis used descriptive analysis to analyze the fishing pattern and analysis of the level of environmentally friendly based on nine FAO criteria. From the research it is known that the peak season of mud crabs fishing occurs during the west monsoon season and the usual season during the east monsoon season, while the famine season at the end of the east monsoon season. Observation results indicate that the majority of mud crabs caught are not in accordance with regulations (size <12 cm) with 70% of the total catch of mud crabs for soft shell crab farming needs. Based on environmental analysis of fishing gear, it is known that crab traps, trammel net, crabbing with a line and scoop net are environmentally friendly fishing gear with a score of 32.37, 26.81 and 32.40. However, there are criteria that do not meet environmentally friendly scores, namely the capture of mud crabs of a prohibited size and many non-target species caught with trammel net fishing gear.
