The World Bank Group helps countries promote strong governance of marine and coastal resources to improve their contribution to sustainable and inclusive economies by supporting sustainable fisheries and aquaculture, making coastlines more resilient, establishing coastal and marine protected areas, reducing pollution, and developing knowledge and capacity around ocean health. Aquaculture (less commonly spelled aquiculture [2]), also known as aquafarming, is the farming of fish, crustaceans, molluscs, aquatic plants, algae, and other lture involves cultivating freshwater and saltwater populations under controlled conditions, and can be contrasted with commercial fishing, which is the harvesting of wild fish. [3].

This book focuses on the challenges people face in managing agricultural crops, aquaculture, fisheries and related ecosystems in areas of coastal zones in the tropics of Asia, Africa, Australia and South America. Challenges arise from conflicts in the use of natural resources among different stakeholders. In , km 2 or about 60% of Thailand’s coast was covered by mangroves. In the following three decades, these were reduced to about 50% of the former cover on the Andaman coast and to.

[Paul T Smith; Australian Centre for International Agricultural Research.;] -- This report describes the results of a study that was carried out from to into the researchable issues in sustainable coastal shrimp aquaculture in Thailand.

Ina project was initiated to: (1) explore relationships between shrimp production and environmental factors for the sustainable utilization of land and water resources for coastal shrimp aquaculture; (2) use the outputs of objective 1 to identify key researchable issues in sustainable coastal shrimp aquaculture in Thailand and the region; and (3) define, in consultation with regional.

Freshwater aquaculture Freshwater aquaculture includes culture in ponds, paddy fields, cages and ditches. Most farms are densely located in areas which have abundant water resources or which are irrigated. The central plain and coastal zone, including the vicinity of Bangkok Metropolitan, Samutprakarn, Suphanburi, Nakorn Pathom, Surat Thani, Chachoengsao, Chanthaburi, are particular.

Water quality impacts to and from intensive shrimp aquaculture in Thailand are substantial. Besides the surface and subsurface salinization of freshwaters, loadings of solids, oxygen-consuming organic matter, and nutrients to receiving waters are considerable when the cumulative impacts from water exchange during the growout cycle, pond drainage during harvesting, and illegal Cited by: Thailand has been one of theworld's largest producers of farmed shrimp sincebut a combination of environmental degradation and viral disease outbreaks continues to threaten harvests in the.

Soil salinity and sodicity are environmental problems in the shrimp farming areas of the Cai Nuoc district, Ca Mau province, Vietnam. Infarmers in the district switched en masse from rice cropping to shrimp culture.

Shrimp aquaculture in Vietnam is in the process of being transformed into a major industry around the intensification of the production system.

The experiences of other countries in the region, especially in Thailand where high input production systems dominate, suggests that now is a critical time for intervention to redirect industry into pathways that are more sustainable ecologically Cited by: Coastal farming and ocean ranching of marine fish, shellfish, crustaceans, and seaweed are a major and growing industry worldwide.

In the United States, freshwater aquaculture is rapidly becoming a significant commercial activity; however, marine aquaculture has lagged behind. Some authors have documented that aquaculture has been responsible for the deforestation of millions hectares of mangrove forest in Thailand, Indonesia, Ecuador, Madagascar, and other countries [18, 19].
