Abstract

The potential of coral reefs on Liukang Loe Island from time to time continues to experience degradation. One of the causes is influenced by destructive fishing activities such as the use of bombs and anesthetics that damage the coral reef ecosystem. The purpose of this study is to map the condition of the Loe coral cover for the development of diving tourism on Liukang Island. The method used through the coral reef survey with the LIT (Line Intercept Transect) method is an effective method for monitoring substrate cover and for knowing the condition of coral substrate in the Liukang Loe Island Waters. The results of monitoring of the condition of the coral reefs of Liukang Loe Island in the damaged category with coral cover ranges from 10.2% spread in the north to west of Liukang Loe Island and coral reef cover in good categories ranging from 51.24% spread in the east to the south of Liukang Loe Island . At Station I, coral fracture (R) was 3.52% at a depth of 3 meters while at a depth of 10 meters it was found to be quite high at 14.20%. Station II Coral cover is only 10.68% classified as damaged. Station III live coral cover is quite high at 51.24%. Station IV live coral cover was classified as moderate at 33.84%. Based on these results it can be concluded that the suitability analysis of diving tourism on Liukang Loe Island, namely station III and station IV located in the east to south of Liukang Loe Island with a category very suitable for the development of diving tourism while stations I and II in the north to west of Liukang Loe Island in a category not suitable for diving tourism.
