ANALYSIS

Strengths
  • The MMAF and the provincial government in consultation with the public, have produced a coastal and marine spatial plan (RZWP3K) that identifies multiple aquaculture zones.
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.
