The aim of this research is: 1) To analyze the results of the main cultivation production of the silvofishery pond; 2) To analyze the result of silvofishery pond cultivation; and 3) To analyze the feasibility of the main cultivation business in the silvofishery pond. The method used for analyzing mangrove ecosystem with focus are: 1) To identify the type of organism that makes mangrove ecosystem as habitat; 2) To interview with farmer and fisherman; and 3) Business feasibility analysis with the Benefit Cost Ratio analysis approach. The results of this study as follows: 1) The main cultivation of IDR. 17,000,000 for 0.40 ha th-1 or IDR 42,500,000, ha-1 the-1; 2) The cultivation yield of IDR.12,000,000 for 0.40 ha th-1 or equivalent IDR 30,750,000, ha-1 the-1; 3) The results of the analysis of the feasibility of the main cultivation of the main cultivation show feasible, because the analysis results show BCR>1, so it is concluded that the ratio of 40% ponds economically feasible cultivated. Suggestion from this research for cultivation activity in silvofishery pond that is: 1) Besides applying main cultivation, also sideline cultivation still recommended as additional income; 2) Drainage of embankment should be done routinely once in a year so that accumulation of organic material from mangrove form litter of leaves, flowers, fruits, stalks, twigs and other undergoing process discomposing.
