This research assesses a site selection approach for net-cage grouper mariculture off Kaledupa Island in Indonesia. Data collection focused on 15 biophysical site capability parameters, plus an additional 7 site suitability parameters assessed through interviews with villagers and local experts. Site capability analysis identified 4,511 ha capable of sustaining grouper mariculture within the 8,582 ha study area. Suitability analysis identified 2,667 suitable ha based on villager opinions and 4,083 suitable ha based on local expert opinions. Reliance on villager opinions and resolution of fragmentation issues reduced the final area deemed suitable to 2,423 ha.
