Shrimp culture and the environment
This paper reviews the interactions between shrimp culture and the natural environment. It considers and gives details of the effects of shrimp culture on the environment and the effects of environmental change on shrimp culture. Examples are given where the environmental impacts on and of shrimp culture have caused serious economic losses to shrimp farmers. The paper concludes that economic sustainability is and will continue to be closely related to how the shrimp farming industry deals with environmental problems. Strategies are considered for improved environmental management of shrimp aquaculture, and priorities are highlighted for future research on the relations between shrimp culture and the environment.
