Project description

The use of trash fish and shellfish in feeding lobster generates nutrient surpluses in marine cage lobster aquaculture in Vietnam. To achieve sustainable development, farms have to apply inputs as efficient as possible.
This raises the question of how productively efficient and environmentally efficient Vietnam marine cage lobster aquaculture is with respect to the major environmentally detrimental variables.
