Abstract


Waters are rich areas in natural resources both biological and non biological where this diversity can give its own influence for the growth and development of a regional or even a state. Nevertheless, the amount of water resource allocation can also have an impact on the high level of pollution in waters area which eventually cause ecosystem damage. One of the causes of ecosystem pollution is heavy metals that are generally produced from industrial waste. Mangrove forest is a natural bioremidiation agent that can naturally absorb heavy metal content in nature such as Fe, Mn, Cr, Cu, Co, Ni, Pb, Zn and Cd and this function is referred to as biosorbtion. In addition, mangroves also have a capability called biofilter that is the ability to filter, bind, and trap pollution in the form of free excess sediment, garbage, and other household waste disposal in which this function plays a role in improving water quality.
