action plan, marine and fisheries center area, Panglima Laot


The development of island-based Marine and Fisheries Center Integrated Areas is the main driver in the development of the marine and fisheries sector, because it integrates upstream and watershed activities and developments in a marine and fisheries development process. The close distance between decision makers and local fishermen makes it easy in the process of channeling social aspirations and control in one set of policies. The development of the Sabang MARINE AND FISHERIES CENTER INTEGRETED AREAS  area is carried out with the commitment of cooperation and hope to improve the quality of life of fishermen in the District of Sukajaya, Sabang. The purpose of this research is to formulate an action plan to strengthen the role of Panglima Laot based on fishing communities in the Integrated Fishery Center Center. The research method that will be used is a quantitative and qualitative approach with participatory techniques. The research location is in Sukajaya District, Sabang. This location was chosen deliberately by researchers based on the results of explorations that have been done before. The process of formulating an action plan to strengthen the role of Panglima Laot starts from the focus group discussion with the Technique using the ORID Technique.

The results of the formulation of an action plan to strengthen the role of Panglima Laot include (1) Formulating rules for fishing that are non-formal in nature and then strengthen formalities by forming written norms as rules agreed upon for fishermen in fishing; (2) Establish the rules of the sea boundaries adjusted to the area of ??authority of a Panglima Laot (3) Reconstruct the devices of the Panglima Laot who control and oversee the course of the sea rules.
