Abstract: Although CSAq brings higher economic and environmental benefits to adopters, broader adoption and scaling of CSAq practices faced several challenges and required supportive measures. To understand the factors affecting the adoption of CSAq, an econometric model was applied with data collected from 200 aquaculture farms. The results indicated that 69.4% of farmer's CSAq adoption behavior can be explained by economic efficiency(30.2%) higher price of products (16.0%); access to technical information (14.9%); pond environmental improvement; the household's labor availability; and food security. Improving economic efficiency and raising awareness about CSAq system among farmers are important measures to be done.
