Abstract or Summary
  • The fisheries resource is almost and/ or had have been over-exploited in Java Island. Cilacap lies in the southern part of Java has a reasonable stock at this moment but adversed by the climate change. Many parties have not prepared to react for the adaptation with such uncertain situation. The objective of this study is to estimate the impact of climate change in Cilacap and its community; and to formulate the adaptation and mitigation strategy under the climate change condition. Respondents of 73 marine-fishers, 43 fish-traders, and 100 fish-consumers had been surveyed. Focus Group Discussion and in-depth interview were conducted to outline the adaptation and mitigation strategy. The study found there was a decrease in catch and affected severed losses to the respondents. Fishers claimed had overspent in fuel, food & lodging, repairs & maintenance and decreased in productivity. The availability and sustainability of fish-stock became questionable. The shocked of fisheries stock affected the chain of distribution and consumption and eventually weaken the food security and the fishers’ quality of live in the region. A short term prescription on adaptation strategy to cope the climate change in the study area is indeed needed. Ecosystem-based fisheries management perhaps could be proposed as one of the way-outs to manage the vulnerable fisheries in Cilacap. This scheme seems will shed a light as a promising new paradigm of fisheries management in Indonesia.
