Abstract: Mekong river delta (MRD) is a largest plain in South-East Asia. Its southern part as a peninsula is a recently forming plain with low surface and it has been made up by muddy silt. Last time, due to human activities and natural processes the ecological environment of this area is strongly changed. A study of the environmental impact assessment due to shrimp production in the Camau bay based on the system and interdisciplinary approach combining with remote sensing is carried out.
