The waters of Ciletuh Bay are one of the waters located in southern Java that interact directly with the Indian Ocean, which is utilized for fishing and tourism activities. Opportunities for utilization of Ciletuh bay waters in the field of fisheries need to be maximized by monitoring the quality of the bay area's waters. Remote sensing methods can identify and analyse the results of the spectral recording of water with observations of TSS and Chlorophyll-a spreads obtained using the Budhiman algorithm et al. (2004), and the concentration of TSS results from the algorithm Wibowo et al., (1994). Observations were conducted using Citra Landsat-8 in 2019 - 2020. The results of the algorithm's application obtained the results of TSS concentrations in the waters of Ciletuh Bay have a maximum value of >125 mg/l - 225 mg/l, and a minimum value of 6 mg/l - 15 mg/l. Chlorophyll-a concentration reaches a maximum value of 6 mg/l - 10 mg/l, and a minimum value of 3 mg/l - 5 mg/l. The same distribution pattern is indicated by both parameters: high concentrations in coastal areas and river estuaries and lower in the high seas.
