Abstract

Muncar fishing community holds a petik laut ritual every year. Petik Laut is held on the 15th of Sura, when the sea water is high tide and the fishermen take a rest.This paper aims to explain Muncar's maritime culture which is one of the identities of the people of Muncar, starting from rituals, Ojek ships, and hunting boats. Existing sea rituals and sea transportation modes are part of the maritime culture of the people of Muncar. Rituals that have the nature of performance are likely to become cultural destinations to present domestic and foreign tourists. The fishing boat transportation mode has economic value and supports the economic strengthening of the people who work as fishermen. By using the ethnographic method, the research begins by collecting library data that is supplemented by field data obtained through observation, participation, and in-depth interviews with selected informants, namely the chairman of the Muncar fishermen community, cultural figures, and fish market managers. The results showed that the Petik Laut ritual is an expression of the identity of the fishing community of Muncar which showed cultural diversity, namely Islam, Java, Madura, and Using. The fishing boat transportation mode shows sailing space and sovereignty over the sea which is the source of livelihood for the fishing communities of Muncar. Various maritime cultural potentials have the potential to be the basis for the development of creative industries.
