Bontang Bay, East Kalimantan is strategically located and rich in marine resources. However, people live at the islands of Gusung and Malahing are generally poor. This paper observes the socio-economic condition of fishermen at the two small islands and their relation with industries. The data collection techniques consist of physical observation, informal interview, and document review. The gathered data is analysed qualitatively. Fishermen at Gusung and Malahing are adversely affected by the impacts of climate change. In addition they are trapped by collectors (middle men) for financing operational cost of fishing and supporting their life during draught season. Their area are vulnerable of being impacted by industries’ activities such as oil spill, smoke stake and odor. It is required for industries located at the area to help alleviate fishermen poverty by initiating innovative CSR for creating self-reliance community.
Key words: Poor Fishermen / Climate Change / Middlemen Trap / Industries / Innovative CSR
