Abstract or Summary
  • In the past, Java island was known as “Java-dwipa”(a place where over-whelmed with food stock). However, due to over population, then food security became fragile including in fisheries sector. The such situation is worsen by economic and political turbulency in Indonesia.This study aimed to explore the level of fishers’s powerment to produce fisheries products in the north-and-south coast of Java, especially to support the food security in their region(s). The study area of Rembang and Cilacap have been selected to survey 462 fishers and 300 fish consumers. The fishers empowerment model done by Susilowati et al (2004;2005) has been applied in the study with necessary modification.The results indicated that fishers in Cilacap have a better level in powerment (in terms of accesing credit, to obtain information of market, processing technique, networking as well as lobbying capacity) than fishers in Rembang. At the same times, awarness and sense of belonging of the government, academician, and other business parties as the competence stakeholders are still far from complete. Thereafter, need more tighten co-management partnership among the stakeholders in order to achieve the secured food supply for Central Java. Please do bring it back my “Java-dwipa” like in the past as a prosperous island.
