The coastal waters of East Yapen is one of the spawning sites and areas of care for marine biota in Papua. Because of its very open location, it is widely used by human activities such as fishing, residential, industrial and cruise lines. This indirectly affects the balance of coastal waters condition of East Yapen that impact on the existence of marine biota, especially phytoplankton. Phytoplanktons have a very important role because phytoplankton is the primary producer in the food chain as a link to higher tropical levels. Therefore, special studies are needed such as looking at the distribution of phytoplankton abundance at each site. The data analysis uses the American Public Health Association (APHA), Geo-statistical data, and Chi Square. Then, the distribution parameters are estimated using the Maximum Likelihood Estimation (MLE) method.The obtained parameters are used to describe the cumulative probability and survival of phytoplankton distribution. Samples are taken from fifteen sampling points. The form parameter of the phytoplankton abundance data is 3.9844 and the scale parameter is 79.929. So phytoplankton is the most widely spread in the 15th location, followed by the 6th location. While phytoplankton is at least in the 8th location.The results show that the highest phytoplankton abundance composition is Bacillariophyceae (50%) and the lowest is Phyrrophyceae (9%) and Cyanophceae. The research is expected to provide an overview of the fertility rate of East Yapen Coastal Waters in particular and Yapen Islands regency in general.
