The reduced interest of young people to become fishermen is partly due to the reality of the lives of fishermen who are vulnerable to poverty, marginalization, and low education. In Banyutowo Village, Pati Regency, Central Java, the fishermen's regeneration crisis was perceived by the community as a serious problem because it would deprive them of their maritime livelihoods and culture. This study aims to explain the phenomenon of fishermen regeneration crisis in Banyutowo. This study uses qualitative research methods with data collection techniques through in-depth interviews, participation observations, and document studies. Data validity is done using source and method triangulation techniques. The results showed that (1) the factors causing the fisherman regeneration crisis in Banyutowo were seen from the large number of parents who did not want their children to work as fishermen (this made the process of internalizing the maritime culture to the younger generation stunted), advanced education and changes in livelihood orientation the community. (2) The large number of fishermen from outside the village entering Banyutowo Village and the erosion of local knowledge of the younger generation about the maritime culture are the implications of the crisis of the phenomenon of fisherman regeneration in Banyutowo. (3) A new perspective has emerged for a small part of the community to access maritime education opportunities as an effort to build awareness of the crisis of fisherman regeneration.
