The majority of "Kampung Laut" Communities Cilacap are fishermen as a legacy of livelihoods from previous generations. Fishermen are the most rational job choice because physically they live on the waters (stage houses) and directly interact with the sea. During its heyday the sea along the "Segara Anakan" yielded abundant results because the area became a meeting place for various types of fish originating from the Indonesian Ocean. Changes in the physical environment cause the fish catch to drop dramatically. Beautiful stories about the abundance of fish catches have ended, now fishermen are increasingly difficult to catch fish. The "Segara Anakan" area has changed, more precisely experiencing a decrease in carrying capacity because it is getting narrower, shallower, and the quality of its waters deteriorates. These changes are caused by several factors, both natural and due to the impact of human activities. This has a direct impact on the catch of local fishermen. These changes are a challenge for fishermen to continue to continue their profession. Various methods have been taken to ensure that environmental changes are not to be dealt with but faced. The adaptation of fishermen to changes in the physical environment is manifested in various forms that show their enthusiasm to maintain loyalty as fishermen.
