This study aims to analyze the condition of the coral reef ecosystem in Bintalahe Beach Bone Bolango. This was carried out on November 7th and 10th-12th, 2020 in Bintalahe Beach. Meanwhile, the analysis is conducted in Laboratorium Perikanan Universitas Negeri Gorontalo. The method used is descriptive. Results demonstrate that coral growth in Station 1 is fair at 69%, in Station 2 at the 3-meter depth is fair at 39.2%, in Station 2 at the 5-meter depth is good at 55.76%, and in Station 3 is fair at 44.8%. Moreover, the abundance of coral fish is low, i.e., 1143 ind/ha in Station 1, 1637 ind/ha in Station 2 at the 3-meter depth, 2182 ind/ha in Station 2 at the 5-meter depth, and 1802 ind/ha in Station 3. The diversity index is 1.729 in Station 1, 2.1089 in Station 2 at the 3-meter depth, 1.5898 in Station 2 at the 5-meter depth, and 1.6187 in Station 3. The plankton dominance index is 0.067 in Station 1, 0.081 in Station 2 at the 3-meter depth, 0.048 in Station 2 at the 5-meter depth, and 0.065 in Station 3. The water quality parameters measured in this study are considered suitable for coral reefs and other biotas to grow.
