Thailand country is one of the world’s leading exporters of shrimp, fish & fish products. However, the creation of shrimp farms & overfishing of the Gulf of Thailand sparked disputes between villagers and commercial interests who depend on shrimp and fish as basic foodstuffs. Various traditional marine fishing areas have become polluted, and shrimp farms have been particularly damaging to coastal mangrove forests. Many local farmers are used these traditional farming methods, which have been poorly developed and only bit by bit they adopted into a more new way using machinery for more productivity. It is projected that future of the Thailand agriculture market will be optimistic on account of growth in production of rice during the forecast period.
