The author uses descriptive research methods with an inductive approach, data collection techniques used are interviews, observation and documentations. Some of the obstacles that occur in seaweed cultivation are the excessive dependence of seaweed farmers on the government, lack of understanding of business people on empowerment and lack of infrastructure such as modern factories in supporting the processing of products that are more economically valuable.
