Abstract

The purpose of this study was to analyze comparison of socio-economic conditions of local and /migrant fishermen on the Arafura coast. The research result could be a reference knowledge and give the proper approach in empowering and managing coastal communities. The research method used descriptive statistical analysis, analyzed with cross-tabulation and correlation. The sample metodology using random sampling.. Correlation tests show that there is a significant correlation between the economic status of local fishermen and migrants. This can be seen from the ownership of the marketing of fishery products, the status of house construction, the status of home ownership, the level of income and ownership of equipment to fishing activity. Likewise, with the social status of the community, there is a correlation between the tribe with involvement in the group, and the level of education. The government has played an important role in increasing the local fishermen income by forming groups of fishing and fish processing groups with various assistance provided and also build the fisherman housing. The results of this study conclude that we need more strategic efforts to improve the economy of local fishermen, especially in the field of financial literacy and management so that the assistance provided can be optimized to improve the welfare of local communities and their families
