ABSTRACT: Aquaponics is a bio-integration of principled recirculation aquaculture and hydroponic plants production both of land and water resources are limited. Application of aquaponics technology maintenance Pasific white shrimp (Litopenaeus vannamei) in low salinity environment an opportunity to enhance the production of Pasific white shrimp. Stocking density is related to the number and weight per unit volume of the unit area water environment. Shrimp can be stocked so dense that individual or collective space is limited can be a barrier for production performance. This study aims to determine the optimum stocking density on maintenance technology aquaponics of Pasific white shrimp in low salinity with lettuce plants on the survival and growth of Pasific white shrimp. This study will be carried out for 4 months, in the Laboratory of Aquaculture, Department of Fisheries, Faculty of Agriculture Untirta. The study consisted of three different treatments in stocking density: treatment A (stocking density of 50 individuals/m2), treatment B (stocking density 75 fish/m2), and treatment C (stocking density of 100 individuals/m2). The results of this study indicate that Pasific white shrimp can be maintained at a low salinity media and maintenance with stocking density 75 individuals/m² give optimal results in supporting the survival and spesific growth rate.
