Abstract

Problems of poverty, social inequality, scarcity of fishery resources, social conflicts between groups of marine fish craftsmen, and ecosystem damage. Criteria for underdeveloped areas: community economy, human resources, facilities and infrastructure, regional financial capacity, accessibility, and regional characteristics. Spurring the growth of a region or country highly depends on the advantages or competitiveness of the region's economic sectors. In the primary sector, which is the main determinant in triggering the economic growth of a region or country, there are also competitive advantages possessed by each industry. The approach that is often used to measure competitiveness is one of the indicators, namely competitive advantage. A region can market its products outside its territory. Equitable development needs to be carried out, especially for people in disadvantaged areas of the research, namely Bangkalan and Situbondo, as coastal areas.
