This study analyzes several factors in which salt production can be produced and also identify the existing knowledge to manage the process as well as equipment of salt making. This study is qualitative research, therefore primary and secondary data of climatology, land typology and land use have been used. The results of this study show there are some factors that affected salt production, including rainfall, soil texture, land contour; and access to seawater. The rainfall is a major factor affecting the success of salt making in Indonesia. Meanwhile, heavy rain has influenced the success of salt production. Soil texture plays an important role in salt production. It is not only due to the effect on the productivity and quality of the water above it but also because of its suitability for the construction of salt ponds and embankment. Seawater access to is also greatly crucial in salt production. Ideal access to seawater is by utilizing tides so that it does not need a machine to pump seawater to the salt production plots.
Key words: Coastal Ecosystem / Salt Production Centre
