Abstract: Bee Jay Bakau Resort (BJBR) is a mangrove ecotourism that has been rehabilitated from damaged mangrove areas. This rehabilitation have an impact on typical mangrove fauna such as Telescopium telescopium and Cerithidea obtusa. The present study was performed in December 2020. This study aims to analyze about abundance and growth pattern of gastropods T. telescopium and C. obtusa and the association with BJBR mangrove ecosystems. The sampling was determined using the purposive sampling technique and carried out at three stations based on the distinct locations using a 1mx1m transect. The association of gastropods and mangrove ecosystems was analyzed using Correspondence Analysis (C.A.). The results show that gastropods abundance ranged from 9 ind/m2 to 84 individuals/m2. Overall, the growth pattern is allometric negative, which means the length growth is faster than the weight growth. The result of C.A. showed that there are three association groups of between gastropods and mangroves.
