Optimal Site for Aquaculture Farming: An Elimination Decision Approach
Keywords:aquaculture farming, decision-making, elimination method, water quality, optimal solution
One of the most important factors in determining the location of aquaculture farming is water quality. The appropriate place with the best water quality must be identified in order to grow the finest quality of fish. However, choosing the best location for aquaculture farming cannot be done only based on one factor. Instead, a number of water quality aspects, such as pH and dissolved oxygen levels, should be considered during the selection process. Thus, this study employed the Elimination and Choice Translating Reality (ELECTRE) method to rank four potential locations for aquaculture farming with five considered criteria of water quality. Three decision-makers who are professionals in aquaculture farming are invited to evaluate the rationality of the locations based on the considered criteria of water quality using real numbered linguistic terms. The process entails eight computing steps. The findings show that location A4 outperforms the other three places, proving that the Marang River is the best location for aquaculture farming.
