Asia Integrated Multi Trophic Aquaculture will be implemented
"For the long term, the use of a water recycling system to minimise water usage in a controlled system is encouraged.
"Apart from that, Integrated Multi Trophic Aquaculture (IMTA) will be implemented involving the aquaculture breeding of different species such as fish, prawn and seaweed in brackish water pond to maximise space as well as biological livestock to improve aquaculture production," the statement said.
