Pollution from Aquaculture

  • Abhijit Mitra


Aquaculture, particularly shrimp culture, has developed rapidly over the last three decades to become an important economic activity worldwide. It has confronted many of the developmental problems in this relatively short period including sector competition, overproduction, trade restrictions, overcapitalization and concerns over environmental impacts. The significance of aquaculture in the context of global food production sector, the management of aquatic resources and the socioeconomic development of coastal rural areas is now fully appreciated worldwide. Significant advances have also been made globally to make shrimp aquaculture development responsible and sustainable.
