Recommendation for improvement
  • Encourage feed companies to publicly disclose source fisheries (for example, via annual reports or sustainability reports, regularly updated websites, or via initiatives such as the Ocean Disclosure Project) - and where necessary, initiate Fishery Improvement Projects (FIP)s.

  • Provide farmers and companies with access to DFISH’s database of government approved drugs, feed, and treatment chemicals. 

  • Approve MONRE’s Circular (currently unnumbered) to guide implementation of the National Assembly’s Environment Protection Law No. 55/2014/QH13 (effective Jan 2015), regarding carrying capacity, allocation of waste water discharging quota, pollution correction, and necessary environmental improvements for polluted areas.

  • Increase the amount of public reporting on disease outbreaks and control, licensing and shrimp farm water quality monitoring.

  • Publish a list of disease-free and disease zones and the name of companies located within them via DAH’s website - as required by the DAH’s Official Dispatch No. 1079/TY-TS, under which the government and farmers are required to monitor disease and environmental indicators, perform disease checks by spot-sampling and collaborate on disease treatments. 

  • DARD Ben Tre, in collaboration with farmers and industry representatives, should establish a disease outbreak and shrimp farm water quality reporting programme (including PL testing), and publish programme information on their website, local television, or news.

  • The AIP should be re-introduced - as its concepts and benefits are known by the local authorities. This could be achieved through collaboration with producer groups such as Tan Hung, Dong Khoi, DBA Biofloc, or extensive farmers in Ngoc Hien.

AQUACULTURE MANAGEMENT UNITS

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.
