SHRIMP fARMING AND MANGROVE: Mangrove prevents coastal erosion and provides spawning grounds for fish so it is of economic importance.

Shrimp farming is lucrative in the short term but it does a lot of very expensive harm in the long term (apart from the destruction of mangrove, shrimp farms are extremely polluting). I think Thailand has banned new shrimp farms.
