Abstract
The purpose of this study is to determine the ethnography of the lives of female fishermen on the coast of Paluh Merbau, Tanjung Rejo Village, Percut Sei Tuan District. In general, it is done to find out the problems by female fishermen in the utilization of marine resources and the form of local wisdom in the use of marine resources on the coast of Paluh Merbau. This study uses an ethnographic method with the descriptive approach using data collection techniques through in-depth interviews related to the life history of fishermen and Forum Group Discussion (FGD). Lecturers and students stayed at 10 female fishermen houses. The results of the study showed that female fishermen sailed from 4:30 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. The equipment and technology systems used are still traditional, namely using two boards, a bucket, and a bottle of drinking water, bubu, and flat shoes. These hunters of marine ecosystem resources obtain catches in the form of shells, bare, king crabs (belangkas), crab, and shrimps with an average income of IDR 30.000-50.000/ day. The result of this income is exchanged or bartered into kitchen materials such as sugar, oil, rice, fish, and others. If sea water is high, generally women plant rice in the fields, making skills in the form of sticking cloth from mangrove processing, and other economic activities to supply the needs of their life.
