Marketing mix has a big impact on the business performance. This study attempted to predict the influence of marketing mix factors on business performance among the small-scale aquaculture in Kelantan. In this study, the researchers collected data by using a self-administered questionnaire.  The questionnaire was selected as a tool to collect the data because of its usefulness. Data were analysed using Smart Partial Least Squares (PLS) Version 3, which is a variance-based Structural Equation Modelling (SEM) was adopted. The result of this study indicated that price and promotion (H2 and H4) were supported and significant.
