Kick-Off Meeting – SHRIMPS Project

On 05.11.2019 the Kick-Off Meeting of the SHRIMPS project took place in Cần Thơ in the Mekong Delta.

The SHRIMPS project aims to find a solution to some of the challenges posed by increased pangasius and shrimp farming. These challenges include the impact on regional ecosystems of additional land use, deforestation of mangrove forests, antibiotic and feed residues and other pollutant inputs, especially regarding the management of groundwater and surface water

The aim of the project is to demonstrate the technical and economic feasibility of dual land use for solar power generation and aquaculture in pond management.
