Overexploitation and unsustainable fisheries activities will have an impact on environmental quality degradation. In the 4.0 era, technology can assist in monitoring and managing sustainable fisheries resources. Research on sustainable fisheries management activities guided by the marine ecological carrying capacity (MECC) evaluation index has been carried out. The purpose of this study was to determine changes in fishery activity to MECC as an evaluation material for sustainable development in the fisheries sector in the form of a website. This can provide convenience and effectiveness and can be used as a basis by stakeholders in monitoring and making policies in the sustainable development of the fisheries sector. MECC is composed of two components, namely carrying object (OI) and carrier resilience (RI). OI is obtained from changes in the value of changes in human activity (RI) and socio-economic development (SI). Fishery activities are a component of RI in the Nunukan Regency, Indonesia. The HI value decreased during 2015 - 2019 and affected the decline in the MECC index as a whole. This decrease was caused by the increase in fish catches, the number of fishing households, and boat activity in the waters of the Nunukan Regency. Based on the evaluation of the decline in the value of HI, it can be used as an evaluation material in developing integrated and sustainable development in the fisheries sector by mitigating bycatch by regulating fishing gear and methodologies, as well as establishing protected area management and fishing. To make this happen, it is necessary to build partnerships between public authorities, business, civil society, academia, and the financial sector within the framework of the Penta-helix model.
