dc.description.abstractThis report aimed to focus on the impacts of coastal aquaculture on poverty but it was often not distinguished from inland aquaculture in the literature and took extra time to ascertain. Aquaculture reporting was also combined with capture fisheries in some reviews. The initial search aimed to draw on evidence from the past 10 years but key papers emerged that were older and the reviews drew from earlier research. There seemed to be a lack of recent research on the links between poverty and aquaculture. The tension between environmental protection and economic development is present in the literature with different views being presented depending on either the agenda in grey literature or the focus of the publisher. There were data on mangrove loss that did not describe the cause of the loss, data that described human-driven mangrove loss but did not distinguish between different human influences, and a small amount of data that linked aquaculture and mangrove loss directly. Unfortunately, it was not possible to find recent data on aquaculture and mangrove loss to assess the latest trends.en
