Agriculture and Environment: Shrimp


As with any production system, there are hundreds if not thousands of environmental impacts from shrimp aquaculture
However, there are 6-10 key environmental impacts from shrimp aquaculture worldwide, with only 3-5 being significant on any given farm.

The extent of the impacts depends on the intensity and scale of production, the laws of the specific country, and when and where the ponds were built.
