Abstract: Silvofishery of mangrove crab culture is one of aquaculture activities in the mangrove area using pen culture. The aim of this study was to find the best model for survival, growth and chemical composition of the body of mangrove crabs (Scylla olivacea). The container used an embedded cage made of bamboo. Tested crabs used had 155 ± 10g weight. A randomized block design consisting of 4 treatments namely: triangles, rectangles, pentagons, and circles. It is proved that different culture model had a very significant effect (p<0.01) on survival, growth and chemical composition of the mangrove crabs. The best survival rate was produced in the pentagon and circle models, while the best crab body chemical composition was produced in the circle model and the body chemical composition was 46.67% of protein, 13.12% of fat, and energy of 3.883 Kcal/g).
