The objective of this study is to examine the variability of sea surface chlorophyll (SSC) and sea surface temperatures (SST) to support marine aquaculture development within the Indonesian region. The study have been conducted by using remote sensing data of NOAA-AVHRR, SeaWiFs and Aqua MODIS for 10 year period (2007-2016). The result shows that monthly variation of SST and SSC climatologies are found to be affected by monsoonal climate system in this region. In deep water areas, the variability of SSC is very small in all year. Meanwhile, the highest SSC concentrations are observed in the Malacca Strait, around the coast of Kalimantan, Arafuru Seas and the eastern Banda Sea from January to December. Added, relatively large chlorophyll concentrations are encountered in the area of coastal regions.
