The application of photovoltaic systems to aquaculture farms (hereinafter referred to as Aqua-PV) has been actively promoted by the Executive Yuan as an important means of accelerating Taiwan's energy transformation. While Aqua-PV in open fields is done using ground-mounted systems with a maximum of 40% ground-coverage ratio, indoor Aqua-PV is done using rooftop systems which permit a much higher PV coverage ratio of 80%. Although indoor Aqua-PV seems more profitable, indoor fish farming is more technologically demanding as it requires 24-hour water quality treatment. Because of this, solar developers need to bring in new teams or cooperate with bigger fish farming businesses to set up aquaculture systems. Yet solar developers and investors believe that indoor Aqua-PV projects are more easily controlled and a less risky business venture compared with outdoor projects where there is more necessity to deal with traditional fish farming practices and management styles. Therefore, although the cost per unit area of ​​indoor projects is much higher than that of outdoor projects, it is now the favored method. Last month, one project secured a massive syndicated loan totaling NTD$8.88 billion (USD$291.3 million) from several banks, setting a record for the highest amount ever provided for an Aqua-PV project in Taiwan. Compared with traditional aquaculture in open fields, indoor projects would permanently alter the land use and should be permitted only after special consideration. However, there is currently a lack of relevant environmental and social regulations and little to no management guidelines for indoor Aqua-PV. Without proper action now, large-scale development of indoor Aqua-PV projects will likely get out of control, resulting in serious environmental degradation and aquaculture problems.

室內型漁電共生養殖場(下稱室內漁電),是現今行政院力推的重要能源轉型方向。室內漁電屬於屋頂型光電,光電板覆蓋率可達土地面積的80%,遠高於戶外漁電共生覆蓋率40%;此外,室內養殖是採24小時水質處理的環境控制技術,具高技術門檻,發電業者多半需引入新的養殖團隊,或跟企業化的養殖戶合作的方式進行養殖,因此發電方及融資方認為相較戶外漁電共生多半需與原傳統養殖個體戶合作,室內養殖是較可控、風險較低的經營方式。因此,雖然室內漁電較戶外漁電的單位面積成本高出許多,但反而更受光電業者青睞,據了解近來申請案件數已遠超過戶外漁電。近期更有案例,得到了銀行團88.8億的鉅額貸款,創下2022年台灣金額最高的漁電共生聯貸紀錄。室內漁電是在魚塭上填土蓋建築物,相比戶外漁電是大幅增加了土地的使用強度,但目前卻缺乏相關環境社會檢核和漁業管理機制。大規模開發下很有可能失控,進而造成嚴重的環境破壞與漁業問題。

台南市七股區頂山鹽灘地近期有不少攝影者前來拍攝小燕鷗的繁殖育雛,然而部分攝影者無視封鎖線的提醒,直接步入鹽灘地近距離拍攝,已明顯干擾鳥類的繁殖,不僅勸導無效,也數度與勸導方發生口角爭執。喜愛拍攝鳥類是一件美事,但如果忽略生態攝影的倫理,也不尊重地方保護環境的規範,攝影行為就可能成為單純的干擾與冒犯。
