In addition, mangrove trees on the coast were able to reduce tsunami waves by 50-60 percent, also neutralize bad chemicals and reduce Co2 levels. This is certainly very supportive for the growth of various animals such as shrimp, shellfish, fish and crabs. Including for rice fields in the north of this area.
