Coastal and marine pollution waters are as result of human activities in the surrounding areas. The industrial, households, agricultural wastages are indicated as the source of pollutants in the coastal and marine environments. The aim of this study was to analyse water quality of coastal adjacent to shrimp ponds based on water quality variables. Samples of waters were collected from 20 sampling stations of Takalar regency coastal waters; during the sampling, in-situ measurements were conducted to measure water temperature, water clarity, dissolved oxygen and pH. Whereas concentrations of PO4, NH3-N, NO2-N, NO3-N, TSS and TOM were analyzed under laboratory analyses. The results of this study showed that water temperature ranged between 26.5 - 27.3 oC, water clarity ranged between 1 - 3.2 m,  pH were 8.09 - 8.26,  dissolved oxygen was in range of 13.83 - 16.45 mg/L,  nitrate were 0.101 - 0.2387 mg/L, Nitrite ranged between 0.0025- 0.0256 mg/L, TSS was in the range of 2-76 mg/L, phosphate was 0.00 - 0.1578 mg/L, Total ammonia nitrogen ranged between  0.0237 -0.1349 mg/L and BOT was 28.67 - 56 mg/L. Based on concentrations of water quality variables regulated by the Indonesian Government, the values of these variables are in the accepted value for marine life.

CONDITION OF WATERS AROUND SUPER INTENSIVE SHRIMP POND BASED ON PHYSICAL-CHEMICAL PARAMETERS TAKALAR DISTRICT OF SOUTH SULAWESI PROVINCE

Coastal and marine pollution occurs because of human activities on the mainland. Coastal and marine sources of pollution originating from industrial activities, household and agriculture (including agriculture in a broad sense as fisheries and livestock). The research was to determine the condition of the waters around the pond based on physical-chemical parameters which include temperature, brightness, pH, dissolved oxygen, nitrate, phosphate, ammonia and BOD on the location of aquaculture in Takalar. Measurement parameters of water quality conducted on twenty points in situ observations for temperature, brightness, DO and pH, laboratory analysis for phosphate, ammonia, nitrite, nitrate, TSS and BOT. The results showed the temperature at twenty observation points ranged from 26.5 to 27.3 0C, Brightness 1 to 3.2 m, a pH of 8.09 to 8.26, dissolved oxygen from 13.83 to 16.45 mg / L, Nitrate 0.101 to 0.2387 mg / L, Nitrite 0,0025- 0.0256 mg / L TSS 2-76 mg / L, Phosphate 0.00 to 0.1578 mg / L, Ammonia 0.0237 -0.1349 mg / L, BOT 28.67 to 56 mg / L. Based on the quality standards of water quality according to PP 82 of 2001 it can be concluded that the condition of the waters is based on physico-chemical parameters are still in good condition.
