This study was conducted in warty sea squirt farm, Jindong Bay(10 stations; July, October, January, April) for the culture period of Styela clava, Styela plicata. We utilized water temperature, chlorophyll a, suspended particulate matter, hydrodynamics, salinity and dissolved oxygen saturation for the suitability assessment of warty sea squirt farm. Newly, Life Requisite Suitability graphs were made for the correlation between the growth of Styela clava, Styela plicata and farm environment. As

This result shows the high correlation with the unit production of Styela clava, Styela plicata(R 2 =0.834, P<0.01). This could be helpful for fishery management for the sustainable productivity through the scientific suitable site assessment.
