Cover for Ecological risk assessment of an alien aquatic species: a case study of <i xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">Litopenaeus vannamei</i> (Pacific whiteleg shrimp) aquaculture in the Bangpakong River, Thailand.

Although aquaculture promises economic and social benefits, escaped organisms can pose ecological risks to the receiving aquatic environments and undermine the sustainability of aquaculture and small-scale fisheries. In this chapter, we present a framework for evaluating the ecological risks of ...

Cover for Ability of <i xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">Litopenaeus vannamei</i> to survive and compete with local marine shrimp species in the Bangpakong River, Thailand.

Potential ecological damage caused by the introduction of Litopenaeus vannamei (Pacific whiteleg shrimp) for aquaculture in Thailand's Bangpakong watershed depends on its ability to survive environmental conditions and compete for food with local shrimp species. To examine this, we determined: (i)...
