Abstract: Lack of land use optimization in Spermonde Archipelago has effect on low employment and regionally generated revenue. The study aims to analyze optimization by determining optimal area for mariculture, sea fishing and marine fishery tourism. Types of data consist of total production/season, tourist visitation/day, man-day count, area size for activity, production price level/kg, retribution fee/person in floating net cage activity, seaweed cultivation, coral reef fisheries, marine tourism and beach tourism. Analysis method applies Linear Goal Programming (LGP). The program aims to allocate land use in Spermonde Archipelago optimally and continuously. The findings found that land use optimization for marine fishery tourism management in every land use reaches 36.23 ha for floating net cages, 67.79 ha for seaweed cultivation, 520.45 ha for marine tourism, 26.94 ha for beach tourism and 288.59 ha for coral reef fisheries. Through the optimized area size, the management needs involvement of private sector, society and the government to increase the production and to absorb labor through an integrated area management.
