Community-based mangrove-friendly aquaculture: Philippine experience
This paper discussed two mangrove-friendly aquaculture technologies that will not only protect the coastal and mangrove ecosystem but could also increase the income of the coastal communities not only from the forest products but also from fish, shellfish, and crab production. Moreover, the technologies will not only serve as livelihood but also help in promoting the conservation of biodiversity.
