Land capability maps
The area to the west of Tanjung Putus (Lampung) was identified as a study site for the interaction between land-based and seacage aquaculture, as there are at least 12 sea cage farms in the channel and two large areas of tambak farming nearby, which are probably semi-intensive.
The Research Institute for Coastal Aquaculture (RICA), South Sulawesi, completed four field trips to the Tanjung Putus area, towards the project goal of comparing the environmental effects of land-based and seacage aquaculture.
