Abstract

The production of shrimp (Penaeus spp.) by means of coastal pond systems has been a traditional practice in Asia for hundreds of years. However, advances in technology coupled with an increased international market demand for shrimp led to the development of intensive aquaculture systems that departed from traditional sustainable systems. In many instances these intensive systems were poorly planned and/or managed and have since proven to be unsustainable, with the result that large areas of “land, ”much of it former coastal wetlands, now lie idle and unproductive, and new sites are being developed in an effort to maintain production output (Stevenson 1997).
