This study was aimed to analyze the welfare indicators of fishermen’s household around coal mining and outside the coal mining activities. The welfare indicators used in this study were education, health, and house conditions. The study site was Muara Kintap, Kintap district, and while Bawah Layung, Kurau district was used as comparing village. Results showed that the education level of fishermen’s families in Muara Kintap was lower than those in Tanah Laut regency in general, but not significantly different from those in Bawah Layung, Kurau regency. The health condition in Muara Kintap was good based on the use of health personnel in baby birth and breastfeeding. The houses were, in general, small and concentrated around the coast and river mouth near the mooring site. Sanitation facilities, such as washroom and clean water source, were very limited, and thus, 74% of the fishermen’s households had to buy bottled and refilled water for drinking water.
