An environment-friendly mangrove aquaculture system, aquasilvi promotes harmonious and co-existence between fishery species and mangrove trees in a semi-enclosed system.

The  aquasilvi culture experiences demonstrate how aquaculture can be integrated with rural development as a strategy for poverty alleviation and environmental conservation.

The culture system helps in providing alternative livelihood to fisherfolk while instilling them the value of coastal protection and maintenance of the ecosystem.
