Indonesia as the archipelago country lies in the ring of fire with about 17 thousands islands. We learned from the occurrence of severed natural resource disaster in Indonesia for the last five years (tsunami, land-slide, flood, storm, etc) which really caused so much negative impact to the people, community, nation and the resources themselves. Many strategies of management-system had have been outlined to manage the vulnerable fisheries resources in Indonesia, from conventional- to modernformat. However, it is likely still far from complete. Under circumstance ring of fire, thereafter the coastal resources in Indonesia, including Bali island, with special reference to Buleleng is really indeed need to be managed more uniquely.
Qualitative and quantitative approaches (mixed methods) had been employed to answer the objectives posed. Focus group discussions with the competence stakeholders and primary survey were carried out to collect the data. Stakeholders analysis was also be invoked to enrich the analysis of the study. The results indicated V2V strategy shed a very good prospect in improving eco-coastal development for small-scaler fisheries. However, it requires conditional commitments among the responsible stakeholders. Hope, the strategy designed – of V2V approach to internalize the external factors of natural factors and the global change response actions from the community to achieve a viable coastal-marine fisheries systems – could be used as a facing out alternative for fisheries management in Indonesia.
