Although traditional shrimp farming first practiced in small, brackish coastal ponds is still used, farmers in Indonesia have also succeeded with semi-intensive and intensive methods. A 30-million-square-meter shrimp farm in Indonesia uses high density polyethylene (HDPE) geomembranes from GSE Lining Technology to line the aquaculture ponds, providing a cost-effective alternative to traditional earthen-lined ponds. With lined ponds, farmers experience better water quality and disease resistance, improving the survival rate of the shrimp—and their bottom line.
