Abstract

Designing the right strategies for the business development of seaweed cultivation in Jeneponto Regency requires a variety of information. One of the required information is the socio-economic information of seaweed farmers. This study aimed to describe the socio-economic conditions of seaweed farmers in Jeneponto Regency. Research data were collected through direct interviews with seaweed farmers. Socio-economic data were collected from the Bangkala, Tamalatea, and Binamu districts. Interviews were conducted using structured questionnaires, and in-depth interviews were carried out to obtain detailed information from seaweed farmers.
