The theme “Research of solutions to intelligent aquaculture in coastal areas for climate change adaptation in the North Coast and North Central” contributes to scientific and practical meaning, enhancing the aquaculture in not only the North Coast and North Central but also the whole country whilst climate change is complicated.
The theme no. BĐKH.18/16-20 is being carried out by a team of scientists led by Associate Professor and Doctor Hoàng Ngọc Khắc who is working at the Institute for Advanced research of Global change and Sustainable development under Vietnam Association for Conservation of Nature and Environment.
According to the research, among current farming systems in coastal areas in Vietnam, some have been implemented and considered potential to deal with climate change, including advanced extensive farming of shrimp in combination with shrimp-rice rotation and shrimp-mangrove farming, advanced extensive farming of marine fish and mollusc, and oyster farming on tide-flat or brackish water ponds and so on.
However these systems have not been carefully researched and tested for expected results. The studies in the theme “Research of solutions to intelligent aquaculture in coastal areas for climate change adaptation in the North Coast and North Central” brings scientific and practical meaning, enhancing the aquaculture in not only the North Coast and North Central but also the whole country whilst climate change is complicated.
There are twenty general work reports and one hydrometeorology statistic report in recent five years (2012 – 2016) of North Coast and North Central. The team has studied upon collecting and processing the data, document and maps on maritime species and aquaculture. In addition, the team has been working on the theoretical and practical basis of intelligent aquaculture in coastal areas in the condition of climate change in the North Coast and North Central.
In the evaluation of the scientists, there are evidential supports to the fact that many areas, especially salt-water land, has replaced two rice seasons with one rice season/one shrimp season/one fish season which adapt well with climate change, assuring local people’s living whilst less spending on salt water prevention.
