Abstract

This paper discusses socio-economic vulnerability and benefits of the Jatiluhur Reservoir in the context of Floating Fish Cages (FFCs). The FFC program originally aimed to provide alternative compensation for the local people, but it eventually became an important business, involving investors from outside the local community who dominated FFC ownership. The activity has grown significantly due to the rapid increase in fish demand and markets, not only for local consumption but also in the Province of West Java, Jakarta, and in some cities on the island of Sumatra, such as Bandar Lampung and Palembang. FFC units have increased in recent years and the reservoir has now surpassed its maximum carrying capacity. This study used qualitative methods with focus group discussions, open interviews and field observation as instruments, as well as secondary data collected through desk reviews.
