An Intelligent Decision Support System (IDSS) for Aquaculture Planning

Document Type


Publication Date



The field of regional planning is characterized by the large number of issues and attributes involved, and regional planning for aquaculture development is no exception. Moreover, aquacultural plans do not have clearly defined objectives and require information that, if it exists, is often imprecise and uncertain. This chapter presents the development of an intelligent decision support system (IDSS) for regional aquaculture planning. The IDSS applies fuzzy set theory to multiple criteria decision-making (MCDM) in regional aquaculture planning. A case study from Egypt demonstrates the proposed IDSS and the fuzzy MCDM framework.
