Several seaweed farming efforts have been carried out in Lampung Bay (Indonesia). However, they faced failure. Therefore, it is necessary to carry out spatial analysis to understand the level of seaweed farming suitability in the bay. This study was carried out in five observation site groups with total 20 sampling points and employed survey through spatial and temporal approaches as the study method. Geo-statistical model was used for earth surface mapping, both for biotic and abiotic components. Each station was then be given value to determine suitability class. The class was determined by making aquatic suitability matrix for each physical, chemical and biological parameter. Results acquired indicate that Lampung Bay area is not suitable as seaweed farming site. However the area is open for any suggestion. Keywords : geo-statistic, Lampung Bay, seaweed, suitability matrix
