The Global Aquaculture Alliance "is an international, non-profit trade association dedicated to advancing environmentally and socially responsible aquaculture. GAA recognizes that aquaculture -- the culture and farming of shrimp, fish, shellfish and other aquatic organisms -- is the only sustainable means of increasing seafood supply to meet the food needs of the world's growing population."

Conservation International Partnership (2007)

"In partnership with Conservation International, the Global Aquaculture Alliance has launched a pilot project to restore mangroves in abandoned shrimp ponds in the Philippines. The multiyear program is designed to examine rehabilitation methods that benefit both biodiversity and local human interests.

"GAA's Best Aquaculture Practices Coordinator Daniel Lee joined Bambi Semroc and Vangie Miclat of Conservation International (C.I.) on the Philippine island of Negros in March to inspect the proposed site and refine the project plan. The site at E.B. Magalona is an area of particular ecological importance that falls within the megadiverse Sulu-Sulawesi seascape, for which C.I. had previously devised an overall conservation management plan."
