The Hills and the Sea: Scant regard for ecosystem

The detailed EIA was also supposed to evaluate and estimate the costs of environmental impacts of the project. Not only was the marine biology sampling found to be inadequate, but the marine catch was grossly undervalued. For example the shrimp catch from these waters was valued at US$200/tonne.

In February 2014, medium-sized shrimps were sold in Penang at around US$20/kg, a hundred times the value estimated in the detailed EIA.
