Abstract

The last few decades, Limboto Lake has been degraded as indicated by the rapid growth of aquatic plant populations and higher sedimentation. The area of aquatic plants is estimated at 25% of the total lake area, which is 3000 ha. Meanwhile, the average lake depth is 3 meters in 2017, while in 1930, it is 25 meters. This study aims to examine the Bibilo fishery profile and review the development model based on the ecosystem approach. The study was conducted in cross-sectional, observational and descriptively analyzation. The respondent determination was carried out in an accidental manner towards Bibilo fishermen. The results showed that Bibilo fishermen were classified as low socio-economic. While Bibilo fishery is the main livelihood in their economic activities. The literature study provides information that Bibilo fishery has the potential to become phytoremediation to contaminate the quality of lake water. Thus, it has the potential to be developed as an ecosystem-based fishery management model.
