Vaname shrimp is a superior commodity in aquaculture which continues to increase in demand. The farming of vaname shrimp in Batukaras Village, Cijulang Sub-district, Pangandaran Regency is carried out with semi-intensive technology, the application of this technology is not sustainable due to lack of supporting facilities. This study aims to analyze the physical aspects and the quality of production and the sustainability status also determine the priority strategy for sustainable management of vaname shrimp. Analysis of sustainability status is carried out by surveys and interviews with farmers then processed using the RAPFISH method (The Rapid Appraisal of The Status Fisheries), for physical aspects measurement of water quality is carried out in situ and testing in the laboratory with measured parameters, namely temperature, salinity, DO, pH, nitrite and ammonia. While the preparation of priority programs is processed using the AHP (Analytical Hierarchy Process) method using Expert Choice software. The results of the research are water quality parameter values for temperature, salinity, pH, DO and nitrite and the quality of shrimp according to standard values, but ammonia parameters are far from normal limits. The multidimensional sustainability level of vaname shrimp management in Batukaras Village has a sustainability index of 60,00 which means it is quite sustainable. The choice of the main priority program for the sustainability of vaname shrimp cultivation is the rehabilitation program for fishpond infrastructure with a value ratio of 0,290.
