Sea ranching will be implemented in conjunction with the artificial reefs installation project as the sea ranching takes place one year after installing the artificial reef. The focus is given to local species of shrimp and fish will be released into the artificial reef area. Targeted species for the sea ranching project includes white shrimp, red snapper, grouper and swimming crabs. In regard to shrimp, the plan targets the release of about 2 million shrimp post larvae at each of defined sites every year.
