The green mussel cultivation by fishermen in Pasaran Island is influenced by nature and uses simple technology without regarding water conditions. In fact, site selection considering the water condition is one of the important factors in determining the success of quality green mussel cultivation. High market demand but not supported by modern technology, good marketing strategies, price stability, and appropriate cultivation site can reduce the production of green mussels. This research was

Modeling parameters measured on the field include depth, salinity, pH, temperature, current velocity, dissolved oxygen, water clarity, and chlorophyll-a. Data processing methods include inverse distance weighted (IDW) interpolations and fuzzy overlay. The study result in the form of raster-based physical water suitability maps for green mussel cultivation are intended to refine the uncertainties in the vector-based data presentation on water quality data so that it is expected to provide additional information to avoid a less optimal cultivation environment so it maintain the quality of green mussel products and support to accelerate aquaculture production raising program (minapolitan) in Lampung Bay.
