Cemara is a village of Cibuaya, Karawang, West Java with an estimated population of 5,000 composed of 500 families.
The main source of income is the operation of fish ponds whereby the total area of 1,400 hectares are utilized for fishponds, at least there are 10 major players for the fishpond that yield 7 tons for every 10 hectares priced at Rp 11,000 for every kilo of bandeng / milk fish.
The road from fishpond to market was washed out and this is the major reason for the difficulty of bringing produce from Cemara to the Fish Depot in Cibuaya.
There is also poor dike system that constantly threatens the safety of the residents. As a result, the roads have been destroyed. Only Motor Bikes are accessible to the fishpond from Cemara center. This makes it difficult for the harvest of the Bandeng / Milk Fish and Cuttlefish to be transported.
