The northern part of East Java which consists
along the northern coast line or the city of Tuban to
Situbondo and all cities on the island of Madura has a
potential of more than 300 thousand tons annually with
the city of Lamongan having the largest amount with
production of nearly 70 thousand tons . Where this
number reaches more than 70% of the total capture
fisheries in East Java province and nearly 6% of the
total National capture fisheries. With the abundance of
capture fisheries, but until now it seems that the
distribution of fisheries cannot be channeled properly
due to too long the capture fisheries supply chain.
Therefore we need a warehouse or inventory that is able
to accommodate this great potential, and around this
warehouse can later be made into a central area of the
development of the capture fisheries industry. The
method used is the center of gravity. With the location of
the new warehouse, it is expected to minimize the
mileage and transportation costs from upstream to
downstream of the capture fisheries distribution in the
north coast of East Java.
