The tradition of petik laut and knowledge of the fish season is the wisdom of the local fishermen of Tambak Cemandi Village used to maximize seafood productivity. The similarity of socio-cultural background has formed the attitude of mutual cooperation and kinship among fishermen. External factors also encourage the strengthening of family functioning as an effort of dual-earner strategy. One of the ways done is by adaptation, in which local wisdom is utilized to increase the fishing productivity and to turn the seafood into processed produts for better economy of the community. This system also supported by other functions so it is able to survive, including goals, integration, and maintenance patterns that take place in the system (latency).
