Abstract

During the Indo-China war an estimated 200,000 ha of Vietnamese mangrove forests were destroyed by chemical warfare. Since the war clearance for aquaculture and population pressure caused further deforestation, particularly in the Mekong delta. Mangrove reforestation is desired. At the state farm at Thanh Phu a combined mangrove - shrimp system has been applied for about ten years
