Investigating the Adaptation Capacity of Stakeholders Clam Farming Faced Flooding – A Case Study in Changhua City

  The impact of climate change on the aquaculture industry includes deterioration of water quality due to continuous high temperature events; extreme rainfall that causes drastic changes in the salinity of aquaculture pond water or may lead to flooding of aquaculture ponds. To ensure the sustainable development of aquaculture, government and the industry need develop adaptation strategy cooperatively. An assessment of the historical hazards and collected the knowledge which farmers used to avoid risks of the industry is an important preparation work to develop a suitable adaptation strategy. In this study, the six adaptation components proposed by the Taiwan Climate Change Projection Information and Adaptation Knowledge Platform (TCCIP) were used to select the area and issue that are more severely affected by climate hazards in Taiwan's aquaculture through literature collection, historical disaster review, stakeholder in-depth interviews and finally selected the clam aquaculture in Changhua area with the flooding hazard. Nevertheless, we used the field surveys and had in-depth interview with the clam framers. The results show the flooding had been destroyed the clam farming led the farmer loss. Until the end of this research, the way to adapt flooding which only rely on the farmer operation. And it seen like that not enough to reduce the extreme flooding. To ensure the clam aquaculture sustainable development, more method for adapt flooding is completely need.
