Mangrove ecosystem support to biomass production of the shell, shrimp, mollusc until 2408 kg/ha of total population found.  The research found that have a similar trend of mangrove growth and biomass related biota production.  The message of this research is important of mangrove conservation to support biota and another ecosystem in the coastal area.    Keywords:  Mangrove, Association, Bontang,
