Formatted Abstract/Summary
The Bangkok Declaration and Strategy for Aquaculture Development Beyond 2000
stressed that adequate investment in aquaculture is essential for its future
development. It identifies several constraints on this investment and makes
recommendations for addressing the issues involved. For example, it recognizes
the risk and uncertainty associated with returns from investment in aquaculture
to be an important constraint on aquaculture investment. This is particularly so
because insurance markets only provide very limited coverage for aquaculturists.
Since 2000, research has been undertaken by the Food and Agriculture
Organization of the United Nations (FAO) to address many of the issues raised
in the Bangkok Declaration. This process has not been straightforward because
most of the objectives for investment in aquaculture set out in this declaration
are indicative rather than operational. In addition, some constraints which are
not mentioned in the Bangkok Declaration have started to seriously impede
aquaculture development. Economic growth generally and the expansion of
aquaculture itself have resulted in increased scarcity of resources
vital for the growth of aquaculture.
