The purpose of this research to know of total organic ingredients, Phosphate, N-Nitrogen (Ammonia, Nitrite, Nitrate), Microbiology and Plankton Density refer to the requirements for maintenance water quality based on Govermen Regulation of Marine Fisheries No. 75 / KP / 2016 and Indonesian National Standard (SNI) 01-6925-2002. Analysis using the Water Quality Index (WQI) method. The Period of the Research on August 2 to 30 November 2018 at 120 days maintenance in block H where consisting of four pond plots, each ± 4500m2. The results of the analysis of water parameters during maintenance that meet the standards are phosfat0.16-0.33 ppm, nitrite 0.09-0.17ppm, nitrate 0.10-0.42ppm, total vibrio in the H4 plot is 6.39x102CFU/ml and total bacteria 4.06x105-8.39x105 CFU/ml. The results of measurement parameters that did not meet the standards included organic ingredients 139.50-173.41ppm, ammonia 0.03-0.08ppm and total vibrios in plots H1, H3 and H4 1.5x103-6.2x103CFU/ml. WQI which was modified for the enlargement of Merguensis (Penaeus merguiensis de Man) shrimp was applied to evaluate water quality during maintenance. The results of the analysis of water quality for 120 maintenance according to the WQI method showed the value of the category of lightly contaminated plots H1 (1.12), H2 (1.51), H3 (1.92) and H4 (0.96).
