Environmental Consequences of and Pollution Control Options for "Tra" Fish Production in Thotnot District, Cantho City, Vietnam
This study from Vietnam looks at the pollution problem caused by fish farming in the Mekong Delta (MD) and assesses a number of treatment options that could bring this pollution down to acceptable levels. The study is the work of a research team led by Ms Vo Thi Lang, from Cantho University in Vietnam. It finds that a trickling-filter system would be the most cost-effective response to this challenge. However such a system would cost farmers more than they currently pay to discharge their polluting wastewater. The study therefore suggests a number of policy options that would encourage fish farmers to reduce the amount of pollution they discharge and help them to meet the necessary clean up costs.
