Visakhapatnam - The southern region of Andhra Pradesh along the coast, is infested with rampant illegal shrimp farming causing severe damage to crops and harm to environment. 

Aquaculture is being taken up in over 1,200 hectares in north Andhra, namely Vizag, Vizianagaram and Srikakulam districts. 

This activity is being carried out illegally on another 1,050 hectares in the region with no action being taken by officials who ignore it.

Despite there being several rules governing aquaculture, some influential persons have been flouting these norms by taking up illegal shrimp farming. “The increase in salinity levels have created panic in the north as a result of illegal aquaculture,” says Dr B. Gangaram of the CPM in Vizag.
