In order to maintain the growth rates, it is necessary to have appropriate government policies to support small scale famers and businesses in the farming processes. Meanwhile, the locals should focus on improving the quality of seeds, reorganizing the production chain and locating the material zones close to the processing plants to provide raw materials sufficient for export activities. In addition, domestic enterprises should be proactive in investment and foster the application of aquaculture science using technology for sustainable development.
