ANALYSIS

Strengths
  • The regional government has identified the need for freshwater aquaculture zones based on the carrying capacity of the waterbody under a regional land-use spatial plan (RTRWP).
Weaknesses
  • There is a lack of public information to assess the effectiveness of tilapia 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.
