Indonesia has a coastline of 47.4 Km2 which is mostly surrounded by settlements and domestic activities. Surabaya is one of the cities in Indonesia that has high potential as a city with large marine waste producers.Therefore, it is necessary to compile a Surabaya marine litter baseline with a coastal survey method as a reference for stakeholders to take action in reducing waste in upstream and down stream sources. The survey is conducted in two places on the East coast of Surabaya, including Cumpat Beach and Kenjeran Beach.
