Bulletin Issue 51 – October 2001

THE FOCUS OF THIS ISSUE: MANGROVES AND SHRIMP FARMING

Shrimp farming is being widely promoted throughout the tropics, severely impacting on mangrove ecosystems and on local people’s livelihoods. Given the importance of the problem, we decided to produce a WRM Bulletin entirely focused on mangroves and shrimp farming, and to request the collaboration of people and organizations involved in this issue. We wish to thank all those who provided information and analysis and particularly the Industrial Shrimp Action Network people, with whom we worked very closely to produce this bulletin.
