Description

The tsunami that struck Aceh Province in Indonesia in 2004 devastated coastal aquaculture livelihoods. The Asian Development Bank-assisted Earthquake and Tsunami Emergency Support Project engaged fish farmers to build and operate four Aquaculture Livelihood Service Centers. The Aceh Aquaculture Communication Center was also set up. With improved aquaculture support services, fish farmers now produce high-value shrimps for export.
