Smart economy as a part of smart city concept has been emerging in recent years to promote urban growth. It infuses digital infrastructure in the economic activities, not only to organize the flow of finance or information but also the production and distribution of goods. This paper provides a review of smart economy concept for coastal resource management in a large coastal city in Indonesia. Surabaya is taken as a case as it is the second largest city in Indonesia with abundant fisheries resources. However, these resources are vulnerable due to the dynamic urban demand and pressures. The approach used in this study considers the supply chain aspects of fishery commodities, involving supply and demand characteristics, the chain of distributions, and the price variation along the supply chain. In addition to the literature review, an evidence-based study is also presented by considering the Indonesian government program in managing the national fisheries logistic system. This paper offers two-fold contributions. It shows the urgency in promoting smart economy concepts in coastal resources in coastal cities and the importance for determining a suitable concept of supply chain management practice and digital prototype design of fisheries resources management as instruments of smart economy concepts.
