Abstract or Summary
  • The Indian Ocean tsunami of 26 December 2004 severely affected six provinces (Ranong,Phang-nga, Phuket, Krabi, Trang and Satun) on the Andaman Sea coast of Thailand. About 27,000 fish cage culture operators in the Andaman coastline were affected by the tsunami impact, covering a total cage area of some 1,123,176 square meters. Estimate of the losses from aquaculture cages was approximately US$92 million. The compensation allowable would be 20,000 baht for cage farms registered with the Departmernt of Fisheries (DoF) and 14,000 baht for cage farms not registered with the DoF. Based on the survey conducted, the money compensated subsequently used to buy materials for cage re-construction and cage repairable accounted for 28.1% of the total, and to buy seed, feed and chemical for culture operation 15.8%. A surprising finding is that 56.1% of compensated money was used for other purposes. The cage farmers raising the grouper, sea bass, red snapper, cobia, green mussel, oyster and lobster accounted for 37.7%, 35%, 11.8%, 10.1%, 4.4%, 0.7% and 0.3% of the total number of cage farmers, respectively. The seed shortage, high cost of trash fish, disease outbreak and marketing were problems and constraints encountered. Technical, marketing and financial supports are required for the future.
