The DGA and regional marine and fisheries offices should support the licensing or registration and the environmental assessment of small-scale farms.
National and provincial authorities should continue to improve the availability of aquaculture-related data, particularly farm and waterbody water quality, EIA, and disease outbreaks and control measures. These could be included under the MMAF SIDATIK, MoEF EIA, and BAPPENAS One Data portals.
The MMAF should clarify the responsibility for the CBIB and CPIB standards, publish the application procedure, and support the reintroduction of a CBIB information portal.
Zonal best practices should be included into revisions of the CBIB standards, which should be mandatory for all producers.
The DGA and regional marine and fisheries offices should incorporate zonal and coordinated management approaches based on waterbody carrying-capacity studies into subsequent revisions of their five-year strategic plans.
In FishSource, information on aquaculture management is displayed at the highest resolution unit for which data is available. Ideally, information would simply be structured around an aquaculture management area (AMA) – the primary unit within which aquaculture management practices should be coordinated across a group of farms to mitigate against cumulative impacts and shared risks. Although AMAs are sometimes recognized in industry strategy and regulatory documents, they are not yet established across all aquaculture industries; so, we typically display information at the province/state level.
