dc.description.abstractSustainable development of seafarming and searanching calls for careful planning. Investments in seafarming must take into account environmental, biotechnological, and socioeconomic considerations. Investment planning must be carefully examined as well as the physical design of production systems such that its negative impact is minimized and the positive impact is accentuated.Supply from the wild may not be expected to grow much higher than present levels. Many of the major commercially valuable fisheries are now overfished at or close to their respective minimum sustainable yield levels. Seafarming can attract some of the fishermen out of overcrowded fisheries.Production cost of seafarming produce is a major concern which has to be examined closely if these are to compete with and gradually supplant the supply of fish from the wild. Feed is one of the main inhibiting factors, hence, efficient consideration calls for constantly improving feed conversion and productivity per unit input.Existing government policies are not clear nor conducive to seafarming in terms of use rights of coastal waters. To attract potential investors into seafarming, governments are encouraged to review existing policies governing use rights to coastal waters, package the necessary technology consistent with the country's wage and price structure, and develop investment profile for seafarming opportunities using conservative criteria.en
