Ornate spiny lobster (Panulirus ornatus) in Sebatik Island is a commercial fisheries commodity that has the highest price if we compare it with another lobster caught by the fisherman in Sebatik Island Waters. That causes the effort to catch this lobster to increase continuously. The availability of biological aspects data of ornate spiny lobster is needed as a basis for sustainable lobster resource management in Sebatik Island. This research aims to analyze the biological performance of ornate spiny lobster in Sebatik Waters, coverage from study carapace length-frequency distribution and carapace length-weight correlation of ornate spiny lobster. This research is expected to provide benefits as basic information in lobster management. Information related to the biological condition of lobsters can be used as a consideration in strategies for the utilization and management of lobster resources. Measurement of carapace length, weight, and sex of ornate spiny lobster was carried out from April to August 2016 at lobster landing base in Sebatik Island, North Borneo, Indonesia. The results showed that the sex ratio shows an unstable ratio. The distribution catch size of ornate spiny lobsters ranged from 64.5–114.5 mmCL. The growth pattern of female and male ornate spiny lobsters was negative allometric with r and R2 values of both female and male >0.95. Carapace length at first ornate spiny lobster catch was 71.28 mmCL.
Key words: Growth pattern / ornate spiny lobster / Sebatik Island waters / size distribution
