for human consumption. Commercial shrimp farming began in the 1970s, and production grew steeply, particularly to service the U.S. , Japan and Western Europe . Global production of farmed shrimp reached more than 1.6 million tonnes in 2003, representing a value of nearly $9,000,000,000 (9 billion) U.S. dollars . About 75% of farmed shrimp is produced in Asia , in particular in China and Thailand . The other 25% comes mainly from Latin America , where Brazil is the largest producer. Thailand is the largest exporting nation. Shrimp farming has grown from a traditional, small-scale businesses in Southeast Asia into a global ...

Warming to draw widespread attention to this important issue. More than two decades of assessments have reinforced the high potential impacts in coastal areas due to climate change and the need for long-term adaptation to avoid these impacts. Deltas and small islands are consistently identified as being especially vulnerable through the 21st Century. While sea-level rise dominates the assessments, the potential for other impacts is appreciated with factors such as the possibility of more intense tropical storms, or the coastal consequences of ocean acidification being two important drivers. Importantly, sea-level rise is ... market research, surveys and trends

Current Status of South East Asian Mangrove Ecosystems
Mangroves are essentially a tropical group of salt tolerant plants that occupy the inter-tidal zone of sheltered coasts around estuaries and lagoons, writes Simon Wilkinson for the Network of Aquaculture Centres Asia-Pacific. Most are found within latitude 25° north and south of equator, covering approximately 17 million ha (Aizpuru et al, 2000) in 112 countries and territories in Asia, Africa, Australia, and the Americas. Global estimates of mangrove coverage vary considerably, for example, according to FAO there were 15.2 million ha as at 2005 (FAO, 2007). Close to half of mangrove coverage occurs in five countries, i.e. ... industry trends, business articles and survey research

In India, mangroves occur on the West Coast, on the East Coast and on Andaman and Nicobar Islands (see Map and Table), but in many places they are highly degraded. According to the Government of India (1987), India lost 40 percent of its mangrove area in the last century. The National Remote Sensing Agency (NRSA) recorded a decline of 7�000�ha of mangroves in India within the six-year period from 1975 to 1981. In Andaman and Nicobar Islands about 22�400�ha of mangroves were lost between 1987 and 1997 (see Table). Growing awareness of the protective, productive and social functions of tropical mangrove ecosystems has highlighted ... industry trends, business articles and survey research

Why Sunderbans so important? - Yahoo! Answers
The Sundarbans is the largest mangrove forest in the world, located in the Ganges delta in Bangladesh and West Bengal, India. Sunderbans is important as it is a barrier against sea erossion and also the habitate of wild animals like Bengal tigers and crocodiles. It also a good tourist spot. Mangroves protect the coast from erosion, surge storms (especially during hurricanes), and tsunamis.[Their massive root system is efficient at dissipating wave energy Likewise, they slow down tidal water enough that its sediment is deposited as the tide comes in and is not re-suspended when the tide leaves, except for fine particles. As a ...
What are the problems of globalization ?? - Yahoo! Answers
Globalization brings a number of issues with it. The biggest of which is that, in theory it furthers the divide btw the rich and the poor countries. When the global community becomes closer and more interlinked, there is a distinct advantage to being a more economically developed and industrialized nation. Having the infrastructure and ability to subsidize their own industries means that they have the ability to protect their own industries while other nations that may be able to compete with their prices on an international scale, tariffs make it more costly to import foreign goods into a protected market while subsidies make ...
