Pelagic and demersal species dominate in marine ichthyofauna in northern and southern of Banten Sea. Detail information about fish exploitation was collected directly from fishermen in four landing ports in the Banten Province (Indonesia). The data were collected in four landing ports such as Tangerang, Serang, Pandeglang, and Lebak district. The total number of recorded species was thirty in Tangerang, forty-two in Serang, thirty in Pandeglang and eighteen in Lebak. The dominant fish in Tangerang was demersal Upeneus sp.; Rastrelliger sp. in Serang, Sardinella sp. in Labuan and Euthynuss sp. in Lebak, all three referred as pelagic species. The area with the known best fish diversity had low productivity shown in data from Serang landing port. The differences in the number of species that were landed in every surveyed port have an influence on used fishing methods with an impact on sustainable exploitation of sea resources in the area of maritime Indonesia.
