The Sustainable Aquaculture Project

Thailand is among the world's top five farmed shrimp producers. This industry brings economic benefits to Thailand, but also many problems such as mangrove forest encroachment, wastewater discharge, illegal fishing and unfair labor practices. WWF is working with farmers and shrimp processing exporters to introduce international standard certification, including guidelines that will lead to sustainable seafood production, environmentally-friendly practices and a greater sense of social responsibility.
