5. In practice, both slopes are often decreased to ca. 1 : 1 (internal) and 1 : 2 (external) to reduce the capital cost of construction. This also increases maintenance costs. g. vegetation above the water line and stone below the water line, slopes can be reduced further. Wall reinforcing can allow the use of vertical walls, although this is more expensive. Walls must also have a top width to allow appropriate access to the pond. Top widths depend on the height of the wall and the activity to be conducted around the pond.

Potential changes in water quality that may occur with climate change, will be required to inform choices of farm location and management. Possible seawater rise with climate change may also impact on estuarine or delta-based industries. For example, the Vietnam catfish industry may have a more saline water source in the future. Open systems are also more prone to predation. Predation can be controlled through the addition of some protective devices; however, methods of predator control in most countries must be non-destructive and are generally expensive to operate and maintain.

The description is particularly applicable to shrimp ponds, but there are general 2 / General Principles features that are applicable to all such ponds (Yoo and Boyd, 1994). 1 Size and shape Ponds are usually rectangular to allow for the maximal utilisation of land. Typically, the length to width ratio is 2–3 : 1. The factors governing the size of the pond are the biological requirements of the animals and access to the pond for husbandry. For example, if a pond is to be harvested by seine netting then a recommended maximal width is 20 m.
