I. Made Putrawan and Gustri Devi Artanti

This research was aimed at finding out fishermen’ quality of life affected directly or indirectly by antecedents factors such as environmental leadership (EL), cohesiveness (COH), locus of control (LOC), social justice (SJ), and Innovativeness (INN) as well. A causal survey used and 120 (117 for 2019 research) fishermen, in North Jakarta. There were six validated instruments developed for measuring those variables and its reliability respectively was .820(QoL), .913(EL), .807(COH), .253(LOC), .746(SJ), and .635(Inn). Data analyzed by path analysis. The research results revealed that SJ was not good mediated factor, compared to INN which directly and significantly affects fishermen QoL. Based on exploratory model, it was found that EL and COH only significantly and directly affected on SJ, but not on INN and QoL. Compared to 2019 research, both EL and COH has a strong direct effect on QoL. It was interesting finding which LOC has a powerful effect directly on SJ, INN and even on fishermen QoL, but not using 2019 data, where LOC was very weak factor. From 2019 analysis, it was dominated by the role of EL and COH. Therefore, in order to make a policy regarding with fishermen empowerment, based on these findings, a combination model would build an exploratory model which was called 18 and 19 structural QoL model and would build a high fishermen quality of life, especially at the era of industrial revolution 4.0.
