1. Description of Our Community
The Perak State Government plans to create arowana breeding zones in the Kerian district, especially in Bukit Merah, Bagan Serai, to avoid exploitation of padi fields which were part of the government’s food supply plan for the nation and the issue were widely being used as breeding ponds. It is known that, it is profitable for the breeders, but its effect on padi plantation in Kerian is worrying. It is estimated that 400 padi fields are being used to breed arowana fish.
2. Summary of Our Project
The exploitation of arowana breeding zones was becoming a concern as it involved padi fields in Kerian. With this suggestion, we will ensure that only certain areas are for arowana breeding. We also found that the Kerian area, especially in Bukit Merah, it has mostly been turned into breeding areas for the fish. On Dec 7, the Agriculture and Agrobased Industry Ministry asked the Perak government to gazette about 100 hectares of land in Bukit Merah, near here, as an aquaculture zone, especially for the breeding of arowana. The purposed of this project is to help the government and any other parties to improve environmental awareness of arowana among all level of people.

4. Problems We Had To Overcome
Regardless of the levels of investment and subsidies for this project, we believe nothing can be done without efforts and encouragement. Therefore, is dependent upon a capacity of time and energy in gathering all the information and traveling to the location are very extremely exhausting and tiring. However, it is a physically and emotionally challenging to our motivation in completing the jobs that be handed to us as a school representatives to the project. The public, private and government sector market processes designed to attract investment into our activities may thus be attributable to information problems.
We begin with the fundamental issue, defining the population to be studied. We then turn to problems of sampling, response rates and bias. We use lessons learned from our classroom discussions effort to elaborate upon each issue. Second, we review the concerns we now are addressing in a further examination of developers and how our approach has evolved. This second section permits us to arrive, third, at some conclusions about the problems facing any parties attempting to draft any incentives to certain parties or individuals. Also, about the whole process of structuring the informing decisions that need to be made within short periods of time.
