M. Fuad F. Mu’tamar, Eriyatno ., Machfud ., Kadarwan Soewardi


Minapolitan is defined as an effort to accelerate the development of marine and fisheries in the fishery production centers. (KKP, 2010). Minapolitan can be considering as an effort to implement equitable and sustainable economic development through rural development focussing on fisheries as a cluster developing point. There are many elements that should be accommodated in the development of Minapolitan due to the complexity and the social dynamic of this program. Thus, to develop a sustainable Minapolitan cluster model in an shrimp agroindustry, an agent-based approach is needed.  The result of simulation model shows that the current Minapolitan program can be considered sustainable since the supply of shrimp raw material reaches 557 kg per hectare and the average profit is about IDR 6 million. Fisherman’s behavioural changes in choosing shrimp seeds, optimizing fishpond area, and improving aquaculture managerial skills could increase the production of shrimp and the profit. Improving the management of post-harvested shrimp conducted by middleman could increase the percentage of the product bought by agroindustries in the Minapolitan zone.
