ANALYSIS

Strengths
  • In consultation with the public, the MMAF and the regional government have identified the need for aquaculture zones under a regional coastal and marine spatial plan (RZWP3K).
Weaknesses
  • There is a lack of public information to assess the effectiveness of shrimp farm management and associated legislation. For example, there is no information on farm licenses and permits, water quality, disease outbreaks, environmental assessments, and source fisheries used in feed manufacture.
