Sawah luhur: aquaculture or mangroves?

ReCLAIM and SWAMP projects undertaken by CIFOR-ICRAF examine the productivity of fishponds in Serang Minicipality, Banten.

Re-introducing magrove and intesifying aquaculture may improve fish productivity while reducing greenhouse gas emissions by not expanding fishpond, but the appropriate proportion is under scientific scrutiny.
