To help the farmed shrimp industry more effectively identify and protect mangrove habitat, SFP and Longline Environment have developed the Aquascape mangrove-shrimp pond mapping tool, to show where shrimp farming regions and mangrove habitat overlap in India, Indonesia, Thailand, and Vietnam. SFP’s research has found that both abandoned and active aquaculture ponds are providing the setting for mangrove recovery and regeneration.
This provides a huge opportunity for the farmed shrimp industry to help bring back lost mangrove habitat.
