Andi Gusti Tantu, Nurkaidah and Suryawati Salam

Tempe Lake is a lake located in the western part of Wajo Regency, South Sulawesi, precisely in Tempe Subdistrict, Belawa Sub-district, Tanah Sitolo Sub-district, Maniangpajo Sub-District and Sabbangparu Sub-district, about 7 km from Sengkang City to Walanae River. Tempe Lake, which covers an area of about 13,000 hectares, has a species of freshwater fish that is rarely found elsewhere. This is because the lake is located on the slab of australia and asia. This lake is one of tectonic lake in Indonesia. Tempe Lake is supplied with water from the River of Bila and its tributaries Bulu Cenrana. In addition to supplying water, the two rivers also cause siltation due to high erosion upstream. The management of Lake Tempe fishery in Wajo Regency that is environmentally friendly must be based on the applicable law that is the Law of Ministry of Environment and the Fisheries Law. In the management of environmentally friendly fisheries, there are regulations in the Forest Management and Fisheries Law. The regulation is a process that must be done to make the management integrated into ecological and economic aspects, namely sustainable management of lake fisheries. Making of environmentally friendly fishing gear, is intended to catch the fish with a width of at least 5 cm, so the existence of fish in Lake Tempe can be sustainable without catching small fish
