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 for semi-intensive and intensive shrimp ponds combined with estimates of total net primary production in Rhizophora-dominated mangrove forests in tropical coastal areas. If effluent is delivered directly to mangrove forest plots, it is estimated that, depending on shrimp pond management, between 2 and 22 hectares… 
The potential use of mangrove forests as nitrogen sinks of shrimp aquaculture pond effluents : the role of denitrification
TLDR
A generalized nitrogen budget was constructed to evaluate the potential role of mangrove sediments as a sink for dissolved inorganic nitrogen (DIN) in shrimp pond effluents, representing an approximate doubling in relation to estuarine water concentrations.
The use of mangrove wetland as a biofilter to treat shrimp pond effluents: preliminary results of an experiment on the Caribbean coast of Colombia
The potential benefit of integrating mangrove and shrimp farms to protect ponds against erosion, to enhance the productivity of supply water and also to treat pond effluents has been pointed out
The potential of mangroves in the treatment of shrimp aquaculture effluent on the eastern coast of Thailand
TLDR
The potential of mangrove wetlands can be used as effective biofiltration areas to remove significant quantities of nitrate, ammonia and nitrite from shrimp wastewater in shrimp-producing nations is revealed.
Attempt at Purification of Effluent and Sediment in Shrimp Aquaculture Ponds Using Mangrove Trees
TLDR
Though a load reduction effect to the environment was observed in the nitrogen and phosphorus budgets, this experiment was terminated prior to completion due to mass mortality.
A synthesis of dominant ecological processes in intensive shrimp ponds and adjacent coastal environments in NE Australia.
Nitrogen dynamics in the settlement ponds of a small-scale recirculating shrimp farm (Penaeus monodon) in rural Thailand
TLDR
It is shown that settlement ponds are capable of reducing water column N concentrations; however, sediment must be managed to reduce re-mineralisation during successive cropping cycles, and coconut fronds were shown to improve N removal, although they should be periodically removed to maintain efficiency.
Ecological footprint for assessment of resource use and development limitations in shrimp and tilapia aquaculture
TLDR
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.
Water column production and nutrient characteristics in mangrove creeks receiving shrimp farm effluent
TLDR
Water column production by phytoplankton and bacteria strips nutrients from shrimp farm effluent and repackages them in more bioavailable forms to counter the effects of turbulent mixing and eutrophication.

Mangroves and sewage: a re-evaluation
The capacity of mangrove systems to remove and immobilise nutrients, heavy metals and other constituents of sewage effluent is strongly influenced by tidal and drainage characteristics, and by the
Dissolved organic carbon-bacteria interactions at sediment-water interface in a tropical mangrove system
TLDR
It is suggested that the mangrove sediments function as an efficient sink for DOC and that its export from the system is minor.
Seasonal variations in concentrations and fluxes of dissolved organic and inorganic materials in a tropical, tidally-dominated, mangrove waterway
TLDR
There was no apparent seasonal variation in the direction or magnitude of net fluxes, and, integrating over a year, all components showed very small and negligible net transport to or from the system, except for total dissolved P which showed a net annual import amounting to 24 % of net forest primary production requirements.
Overview of penaeid shrimp culture in Asia
TLDR
This paper attempts to compare the technological and financial inputs in high technology with traditional farming practices in the region with special reference to the socio-economic condition in Asia.
