Abstract

Fishing is one of the livelihoods in Java that causes the emergence of fishing gear that is different from one place to another. This article highlights the problem of fishing gear based on its history and culture. What is the history of fishing gear in Java? What culture is the background and caused by the fishing gear? Why is this fishing gear still sustainable? The results show that the variety of fishing gear is influenced by several cultural regions, namely inland areas, pond areas, and coastal areas. Based on various types of fishing gear, it also shows that fishing is a part-time job or the main job. In a community whose main job is fishing, a culture arises related to their fishing gear. The fishing gear is still sustainable until now because the tool is still used even though there are innovations in its manufacture.
