Abstract or Summary
  • In order to ensure sustainable aquaculture development basic elements needs to be taken into consideration, i.e. environmental, social and economic aspects. Most of the research focuses on the environmental aspects and very little of the social and economic aspects. There is no doubt that when dealing with sector development, socio-economic elements cannot be excluded as they are a core of most developmental initiatives. This is acknowledged by Garaway et.al (2006) in indicating that there is a need to increase interdisciplinary research and social sciences in aquaculture development. Bunting (2008) as public acceptability and perception as some of the elements that could have impact on sector development. These factors may have impact on developmental policies; therefore it is important for policy makers to be aware of them. These pilot study focuses on how public perceive environmental and socio-economic impacts of marine aquaculture. A survey using questionnaire was conducted where interested and affected stakeholders were interviewed. Participant’s perception together with their knowledge has been presented and recommendations on implementation of the full survey are made. Note: A report on the study will be finalized by the 20th February 2012.
