Sapeken Islands, Madura, Indonesia belongs to the category of the golden triangle of the Archipelago, because it has the richness of the sea, maritime culture, and ethnic uniqueness. The majority of the population in these islands have livelihoods as fishermen (depending on the sea). This study aims to describe changes in patterns of livelihoods of people in the area over the past few years. The research method used is qualitative with a phenomenological approach. The use of the phenomenological approach aims to describe the process of social and economic development (transformation) that affects the condition of the Sapeken Islands. Data and information were obtained by observing for five years directly looking at and describing what happened in the field, in-depth interviews with the community to explore experiences and observations in the field in accordance with community conditions, documentation, and literature studies. The subject of the study was determined by purposive sampling, namely the researcher determined the sample by certain considerations and was considered to have represented several other samples. The results show that the people on the island have undergone a change towards a better direction, both in terms of knowledge about fishing and utilizing and maximizing the potential of existing seaweed into processed materials that are more valuable. Factors that have a lot of role are law enforcement and the existence of community development programs from a company and mentoring from universities.
