Handling in fishing vessel is urgent to maintaining the quality of tuna products, while the existence
of waste components can bother the performance of fishing operations. The aims of this research are to
evaluate the handling system of tuna products in fishing vessel and to analyze the influences of fishing
operation to the existence of waste components. This research methods are no control chart and regression
model approach. Research result shows that the handling system in the fishing operation of tuna in Bitung
is not optimum. But the quality of tuna products which landed is still in controlled as shown by amount
of rejecting products in UCL-LCL range (0 – 3,63 reject products/processing). The influence of amount of
tuna caught per setting (X) to existence of bait waste (Y) formulated with model Y = - 1,176X+37.794, the
influence of amount of tuna products (X) to the existence of ices remained Y) formulated with model Y =
- 0,002X + 62,226, and also the influences of fishing operation which deputized by the amount of ABK (X1)
and number of operating days (X2) to the existence of freshwater remained (Y) formulated with model Y
= 50,000X1-23,704X2+288,889. The significant impacts are only the influence of amount of tuna products
in existence of ices remained (sigh = 0,036) and number of operating days of the existence of freshwater
remained (sigh = 0,037).
