The development of marine culture activities aims to meet the needs of fisheries production that continues to increase due to declining capture fisheries production. This research aims to analyze the suitability of marine culture in Rat village so that it can be used as the basis for the development of cultivation in the area. The research was conducted in the waters of Rat village, Southeast Maluku district from February to September 2017 by combining interview method, observation and endurance testing of sea pens. Based on the research result, it can be concluded that the waters of Rat village can be utilized for the development of sea cucumber cultivation (Holothuria sp), swimming crabs (Portunus sp), sea urchin (Diadema sp), and Gracilaria sp with sea pens method.
