Data analysis included diversity index, Frequency type and Gastropod Similarity Index Efipauna and Treefauna. The results showed that the mangrove ecosystem, has gastropod species Epifauna of 17 types and 15 types for Treefauna. While on seagrass, consists of nine types Epifauna and 6 types Treefauna. Gastropod diversity index value Epifauna on mangrove ecosystems are 0.55 and 0.70 whereas Treefaunaie on seagrass for gastropods Epifauna is 0.77 with a high diversity categories and Treefauna is 0.18 with a low diversity category. Sulcata terrebralia species has the highest value of the frequency of attendance either in mangrove and seagrass ecosystems.
