Different areas may respond differently to the same nutrient dose. Besides the coastal volume in the case of marine sites and the water retention time, it is of importance to determine any areas of erosion, transportation or accumulation on the proposed site. If cages are installed in areas of erosion and transportation the accumulation of oxygen-consuming organic material will be minimized and spread over the surrounding waters and sediments. In contrast, in an area characterized by fine sediments and accumulation processes, the spread of organic materials will be restricted.

There is no doubt that aquaculture has contributed to the changes, but its share of the impact is difficult to determine in quantitative terms. Conversion of mangroves into brackish water farms has been in practice for centuries. In the Philippines, over 206 500 ha, representing about 45% of the original mangroves, are reported to have been reclaimed for milkfish and shrimp farming by 1984. One-third to one-half of the 40 000–50 000 ha of shrimp farms in Ecuador are built on mangrove areas. The extensive brackish water pond farms, or tambaks, in Indonesia that cover over 225 000 ha were originally mangrove swamps.

Ungson et al. (1993) provide details of the organization and funding of red sea bream ranching in Kagoshima Prefecture, Japan. They concluded that the project was an economic success, showing a high rate (~15%) at a market price of US $35–115 kg−1. 5 Farm Design In site selection and farm design, particularly in the case of land-based farms, the general tendency is to pay special attention to the quantity and quality of water supplies to the farms, and very little to the discharge and dispersion of effluents.
