Research activities have been carried out in October 2021-January 2022. The results showed that the density of mangroves growing in the mangrove forest ecosystem of Anak Setatah Village, namely Station I, was 1122 ind/ha; Station II  is 1799 ind/ha and Station III is 1289 ind/ha. Mangrove density at Station I and Station III is classified as medium category, at Station II is classified as very dense category. the results of the identification of mangrove vegetation in Station I obtained 2 species of mangrove (Avicennia alba and Avicennia marina); Station II obtained 4 mangrove species (Rhizophora apiculata, Rhizophora mucronata, Avicennia alba and Avicennia marina); and Station III obtained 2 species of mangrove (Avicennia alba and Avicennia marina).
