BWM Convention used to control and monitoring invasive species content in ballast water. This convention also regulates ballast water discharge, to reduce the risk of the spreading of harmful aquatic organism from one region to other region, and poses serious ecological and health problems. Ballast water spreading is depending on the amount of maritime traffic. The increasing of maritime traffic in Indonesia Port also will impact to the spreading of ballast water discharge. This analysis will conduct to identify and estimate the ballast water discharge profiles in Tanjung Perak Port, develop the software application for ballast water discharge profile estimation in port, estimate the pump capacity for establish the ballast water treatment, and know the relation of ballast water discharge profiles and the ratification of BWM Convention in Indonesia. Ballast Water Discharge Assessment (BWDA) model is used to calculate the estimation of ballast water discharge in Tanjung Perak Port and the secondary data used to identify the harmful species content from origin country. The results of this final project are estimation of quantity of ballast water discharge and its possibilities profile. Several countries become the biggest origin country that discharge ballast water. Ballast water discharge profiles estimation can be used to establish monitoring mechanisms to prevent ballast water pollution in Indonesia sea, and make the long-term risks assessment in ballast water management.
