What is the water surface area currently being used for aquaculture?
The area for aquaculture includes the whole area that is being used for aquatic
product raising under the management of the household, including the rented, borrowed or
contracted areas for aquaculture from other households and the area of water surface, but
excluding the areas that have been rented or contracted out to other households. If the household,
in the same area, breeds 2 or 3 types of aquatic products, record only the area for the main
product of the household. For example: if the household has 360 m2
of pond for fish raising and
shrimp breeding, when we calculate area for aquaculture, record only 360 m2
for fish raising of
the household. However, for each types of aquatic products harvested on the areas, they should
be separated for each kind as: fish, shrimp, other aquatic products, including expenditures to
record to questions 5,6,7.
