Bioeconomic modeling was used to evaluate traditional and extensive shrimp production in the Mahakam Delta and impacts of adopting Better Management Practices (BMP) for semi-intensive and integrated mangrove-shrimp culture. Modeling outcomes indicate that traditional production is not financially viable, failing to generate a positive 10-year Internal Rate of Return (IRR). Such practices persist in the Mahakam Delta as capital costs have been depreciated against past financial returns, input… Expand
Evaluating sustainable intensification and diversification options for agriculture-based livelihoods within an aquatic biodiversity conservation context in Buxa, West Bengal, India
Potential impacts of sustainable intensification and diversification options for agriculture-based livelihoods in Buxa, West Bengal, India, were evaluated using bioeconomic modelling. The baselineExpand
Evaluating the contribution of diversified shrimp-rice agroecosystems in Bangladesh and West Bengal, India to social-ecological resilience
Abstract Shrimp-rice farming practices in the coastal areas of Bangladesh and West Bengal, India are reviewed. It is apparent that this integrated aquaculture-agriculture system is suited toExpand
Economic feasibility of mangrove restoration in the Southeastern Coast of Bangladesh
Abstract Chakaria Sundarban (CSB), Maheshkhali, and Kutubdia are the major mangrove islands in the Southeastern Coast of Bangladesh. The mangroves of these islands have been replaced almost entirelyExpand
Integrated mangrove-shrimp cultivation: Potential for blue carbon sequestration
Globally, shrimp farming has had devastating effects on mangrove forests. However, mangroves are the most carbon-rich forests, with blue carbon (i.e., carbon in coastal and marine ecosystems)Expand
Sustainable intensification of aquaculture value chains between Asia and Europe: A framework for understanding impacts and challenges
Abstract Sustainable intensification (SI) is defined and interpreted in terms of a framework to support production of farmed aquatic animals in Asia and their trade with Europe. A novel holisticExpand
Shrimp-based livelihoods in mangrove silvo-aquaculture farming systems
The paper reviews the following three types of mangrove-shrimp systems: (i) integrated with canals between platforms planted with mangrove; (ii) associated having larger areas of water and a largeExpand
Capturing Ecosystem Services, Stakeholders' Preferences and Trade-Offs in Coastal Aquaculture Decisions: A Bayesian Belief Network Application
This research shows that Bayesian belief modeling can support complex decision-making on pathways for sustainable coastal aquaculture development and thus contributes to the debate on the role of Aquaculture in social-ecological resilience and economic development. Expand
Mathematical Model of Channel Catfish Foodfish Production in Multiple-Batch
Market size requirements for catfish change periodically, and catfish farmers must adjust quickly. Data from catfish pond studies at the University of Arkansas at Pine Bluff (UAPB) were used toExpand
Bioeconomic modelling in aquaculture: an overview of the literature
Abstract Bioeconomic models consist of the use of mathematics to model the behaviour of biological systems conditioned by biological, environmental, economic and technical factors. At present, marketExpand
Selection of mangrove species for shrimp based silvo-aquaculture in the coastal areas of Bangladesh
The purpose of this work was to assemble information with which to help identify and select mangrove species most likely to be useful and locally acceptable for use in transforming the dominantExpand


Evaluating the economic potential of horizontally integrated land-based marine aquaculture
Findings suggest that bioeconomic modelling can contribute to the optimisation of horizontally integrated aquaculture systems, helping elucidate promising scenarios and identify key constraints and priorities for targeted research and development. Expand
Modelling economy-ecology linkages in mangroves: Economic evidence for promoting conservation in Bintuni Bay, Indonesia
Abstract Woodchip exports pose a potential threat to a 300 000-ha mangrove ecosystem in the Bintuni Bay area of Irian Jaya, Indonesia. The bay supports an important shrimp export industry, andExpand
Synthesis Scenarios for Resilient Shrimp Aquaculture in Tropical Coastal Areas
We contend there are currently two competing scenarios for the sustainable development of shrimp aquaculture in coastal areas of Southeast Asia. First, a landscape approach, where farming techniquesExpand
Integrated shrimp‐mangrove farming systems in the Mekong delta of Vietnam
Investigating the shrimp-mangrove farming systems in Ngoc Hien district at the southern tip of the Mekong delta through a detailed farm-level survey found that the farming systems with a mangrove coverage of 30-50% of the pond area gave the highest annual economic returns. Expand
Ecological footprint for assessment of resource use and development limitations in shrimp and tilapia aquaculture
It is concluded that shrimp farming in Colombia is already utilizing close to the full support capacity of its coastal environment, and intensive tilapia cage farming is 10 000 times larger than the area of the cages. Expand
A bioeconomic model of shrimp maricultural systems in the U.S.A.
Abstract A general conceptual model of a marine shrimp farming system representing important relationships between the engineering design of facilities, the environmental and managerial factorsExpand
Ecological limitations and appropriation of ecosystem support by shrimp farming in Colombia
Shrimp farming in mangrove areas has grown dramatically in Asia and Latin America over the past decade. As a result, demand for resources required for farming, such as feed, seed, and clean water,Expand
Aquatic food production in the coastal zone: data-based perceptions on the trade-off between mariculture and fisheries production of the Mahakam Delta and estuary, East Kalimantan, Indonesia.
The potential for detection of changes in resource outcome and assessment of the trade-off between mariculture and fisheries, at both the local level and through aggregated fisheries statistics, is limited because of the high variability in outcome. Expand
Principles of Sustainable Aquaculture: Promoting Social, Economic and Environmental Resilience
Aquaculture is the farming of aquatic organisms, principally fish, molluscs, crustaceans and marine algae. It has seen phenomenal worldwide growth in the past fifty years and many people view it asExpand
Mangroves as filters of shrimp pond effluent: predictions and biogeochemical research needs
Preliminary estimates of the ratio of mangrove forest: shrimp pond area necessary to remove nutrients from shrimp pond effluent are made using budgets of nitrogen and phosphorus output forExpand
