The purpose of this study was to determine the effectiveness of Spirulina platensis for remediation of vannamei shrimp culture waste. The method used in this study was a Non-Factoral Completely Randomized Design (CRD) with 4 treatments and 3 replications, namely (A) Control; (B) 50% waste (1500 ml waste + 1500 ml water) + technical fertilizer + Spirulina inoculant; (C) 75% waste (2,250 ml of waste + 750 ml of water) technical fertilizer + Spirulina inoculant; (D) 100% waste + technical fertilizer + Spirulina inoculant. Data analysis used ANOVA with 95% confidence level. The results showed that the use of Spirulina platensis as a remediation agent for vaname shrimp culture had a significant effect on reducing levels of waste ammonia, phosphate, nitrate, and density of Spirulina platensis (Fcount > Ftable 0.05).
