ESTIMATION OF COASTAL ASIMILATION CAPACITY BASED ON STANDARD EFFLUENT WASTE NITROGEN AND PHOSFORUS OF SHRIMP CULTIVATION
This research was conducted in May 2018 in the coastal area of Banyuputih Subdistrict, Situbondo Regency, East Java with the aim of estimating the volume of seawater available in coastal waters and the capacity of coastal waters in assimilating N and P waste load based on N and P effluent standards for cultivation shrimp. The results showed that the coastal waters of Banyuputih had a volume of water available for dilution of N and P wastes of 43,198,298 m3. The maximum N and P waste load that can be assimilated by water according to the standard effluent of N waste for shrimp farming is 172, 8 tons and for the P waste load is 17.28 tons. The results of this study can be used as a reference in determining the environmental carrying capacity of coastal waters in the development of intensive shrimp ponds in the study area.
