Abstract

Seagrass is the marine plant species that has essential ecological functions for the sustainability of fish resources and biodiversity. However, it has long been neglected, not fully conserved as well as other ecosystems (mangroves and coral reefs). This study aims to assess the small fisherman's perspective on seagrass sustainability through eco-friendly cultivation over the study sites. The data were collected through direct observation, questionnaires, interviews and discussions. All data was analyzed using descriptive statistical analyses. The results showed the small-scale fishermen over the study sites led to classifying seagrasses based on their morphological characteristics and seagrass functions. Most of respondent's assessment ended up finding it quite useful. The ecological knowledge of small-scale fishermen on seagrass conservation is important, especially for the sustainability of friendly environmental cultivation. Therefore, it should be included in the seagrass conservation policy at the local, regional and national level which empowers the small-scale fishermen for friendly environmental cultivation
