Prawn breeding grounds are usually established in mangrove swamps on the coasts of third-world countries.  Mangroves, which grow between land and sea, protect the coastline and act as a nursery for sea life.  90% of fishes depend particularly for their reproductive cycle on the incredible richness of this ecosystem.  More than 2,000 species of fish, crustaceans and plant life flourish there to the great benefit of fishermen.  In 2004 the Indonesian villages which were least affected by the tsunami were those sheltered by mangroves.  In spite of this these mangrove forests are being destroyed on a massive scale in Indonesia, the Philippines, Thailand, Brazil, Ecuador and Panama.  Between 1980 and 2005 the tropics lost 20% of their mangrove forests to make room for agriculture and aquaculture.  This was false economy from the point of view of sustained development, since a report issued in 2006 by the UN Program for the Environment (UNPE) estimated the annual economic contribution of this ecosystem at between 135,000 and 600,000 euros per square kilometre.
