Indonesia as an archipelago country is surrounded by 17 thousand islands. Learning from natural disasters that have not been interrupted in Indonesia for the past five years (tsunami, landslide, flood, storm, etc.) that really cause so many negative impacts on the community, the nation and the resources themselves. Many governance system strategies have been prepared to manage vulnerable fisheries resources in Indonesia, from conventional pattern to modern. But it seems that it is still far from expectation. In such circumstance, the coastal resources in Indonesia, including the island of Bali, especially in Buleleng Regency, really need to be managed better with all its uniqueness. Qualitative and quantitative approaches (mixed method) are used to answer the proposed objectives. Focused Discussion Group (FGD) with competent stakeholders and primary survey are conducted to collect data. The stakeholder analysis is also asked to support the analysis of the study. The result indicates that the V2V strategy provides very good prospect in increasing the development of coastal ecosystem for small fisheries as long as recommendation is taken into account. However, it requires conditional commitment between the responsible stakeholders. Expectation of strategy design with V2V approach is to internalize external factors such as natural factor and action to respond to global changes from the community to achieve viable coastal marine fisheries system and can be used as an alternative to dealing with external parties to manage capture fisheries so that they can withstand current vulnerability.
