PERUBAHAN GILLNETTER MENJADI TROLL LINER DI PPN PALABUHANRATU (Changes of Gillnetter into Troll Liner in PPN Palabuhanratu)
Fishing fleet in Palabuhanratu, especially for big pelagic fish such as tuna has shown increasing significantly since 2008. This is caused by implementation of rumpon (fish aggregating device) technology that makes fishing activities more efficient due to more exactly fishing ground. This condition made some gillnet fisherman modify their boat to troller that considered having high ability to catch tuna. The aimed of the research was to determine parts of gillnetter that can be modified to be operated as troller. The result showed that only upper parts of gillnetter that had significant modification to be operated as troller. Some upper part was reduced, the roof was eliminated and fish hold was added from 2 to 3 rooms. A little addition of buildings was constructed at the bow and new engine mounting was constructed as well to reach appropriate speed.
Key words: gillnetter, modification, Palabuhanratu, troller
