Thai version of the International Principles for Responsible Shrimp Farming.

Shrimp farming is one of the fastest growing aquaculture sectors in many parts of the world and also one of the most controversial. Rapid expansion of this sector generated income for many countries, but has been accompanied by rising concerns over environmental and social impacts. The International Principles for Responsible Shrimp Farming provide the basis upon which stakeholders can collaborate for a more sustainable development of shrimp farming. The International Principles have been developed by the Consortium on Shrimp farming and the Environment, which consists of the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO), the Network of Aquaculture Centres in Asia-Pacific (NACA), the Global Programme of Action for the Protection of the Marine Environment from Land-based Activities of the United Nations Environmental Programme (UNEP/GPA), the World Bank (WB) and the World Wildlife Fund (WWF).

The principles address issues including:
* Farm siting.
* Farm design.
* Water use.
* Broodstock and postlarvae.
* Feed management.
* Health management.
* Food safety.
* Social responsibility.

Shrimp aquaculture certification principles

Published: 17/9/2005 | 3110 views
This is a draft document on shrimp principles prepared by Dr Jason Clay of WWF-US in 2001, which is the basis of the International Principles for Responsible Shrimp Farming 2006.

The purpose of shrimp certification is to market shrimp produced by responsible techniques that would meet the expectations of socially- and environmentally-aware consumers. The goal of certification should be to reward producers who have complied with better practices and management systems, reduced their impacts, increased the efficiency of their resource use and been exemplary in terms of the socially responsibility of their employee relations as well as their interactions with other local stakeholders.

Arabic version of the International Principles for Responsible Shrimp Farming.

يعتبر استزراع الاربيان واحدا من اسرع قطاعات الاستزراع نموا في أنحاء مختلفة من العالم، بالإضافة الى كونه واحدا من اكثر القطاعات إثارة للجدل والخلاف. إن التوسع السريع لهذا القطاع أدى إلى زيادة الدخل للعديد من البلدان، ولكنه أدى أيضا إلى زيادة القلق بخصوص تأثيراته البيئية والاجتماعية المحتملة. إن المبادئ الدولية لترشيد استزراع الأربيان توفر الأساس الذي يمكن لأصحاب الشأن من خلاله التعاون نحو إدارة مستدامة لاستزراع الاربيان. وقد تم وضع هذه المبادئ الدولية عن طريق التجمع من اجل استزراع الأربيان والبيئة والذي يتكون من منظمة الأغذية والزراعة التابعة للأمم المتحدة (الفاو)، شبكة مراكز الاستزراع في آسيا والمحيط الهادي، البرنامج العالمي لحماية البيئة البحرية من أنشطة المصادر الأرضية التابع لبرنامج الأمم المتحدة لحماية البيئة (اليونيب)، البنك الدولي والصندوق العالمي لحماية الطبيعة.

Principles to Practice

Published: 24/9/2006 | 4169 views
Two in-country shrimp projects, in India and Vietnam, have provided good examples of translating the international principles into specific better management practices (BMPs) adapted to local farming conditions and ensuring their implementation by relevant stakeholders. They give evidence of the advantages of small farmers being organized (as aquaclubs, associations or societies), sharing resources, helping each other and adopting BMPs. The results range from improved yields, less impact on the environment, wholesome products, and better relations among players in the market chain. In short, the implementation of the BMPs has provided benefits to the farmers, environment and society.
