ECOLIVA - Sustainable ECOsystem services and LIVelihoods through Aquaculture development
The development of aquaculture, and in particular of shrimp farming, critically transformed coastal ecosystems, livelihoods and the economy of Thailand over the last 30 years. Having gone through an important phase of re-organisation after disastrous series of disease epidemics and impacts on the environment that led to its near collapse, the sector is now striving to produce responsibly high quality shrimps whilst maintaining the ecosystem services it depends upon. However, many questions surrounding the reality of this aspiration had remain unanswered and were addressed under the ECOLIVA project.
Please refer to the attached 2-page final publishable summary report.
