Ambon is one of the cities in Maluku province which is very potential in fishery, particularly catch fishery. The development of catch fishery in Ambon in 2008 could be seen from the number of fishing fleets and the kinds of fishing equipment used. The number of fishing fleets was 1,829, comprising unmotorized boats with 1,224 fleets, motorized boats with 586 fleets, and engined vessels with 24 fleets. In the meantime, the number of fishing equipment used was 3,462. Fresh fishery production in Ambon reached 19,919.41 tons with a production value of Rp 63, 965,805,000. Fresh fish production was dominated by cakalang fish. The potential availability of fishery resource around Ambon island waters was not completely supported by enough human resource ability to manage it well. Technological and managerial competence of the coastal community in Ambon in the field of fishery and marine was not sufficient to be able to utilize the potential resource evailable in fishery and marine. In addition, the capital availability to boost economic activities in the field of fishery and marine was relatively limited. The knowledge and skill of the coastal community in Ambon was still traditional since they just tried to fulfill their daily needs. Therefore, more efforts would be needed to increase their productivity. Considering this condition, the idea of partnership initiated by Departemen Kelautan dan Perikanan (Sea and Marine Department) through PEMP program was very important for the empowerment of the fishing community in the region so that they would be able to get out of their backwardness and improve their lives.
