This study encompasses the area of identifyihng the constraint that is faced by giant freshwater prawn farmers which causes this aquaculture industry to be non- sustainable in the peninsular Malaysia. The objectives are to explore and identify the major constraints faced by farmers in the production of M.rosenbergii in Malaysia which leads to the industry being non-sustainable and to investigate the effect of different demographical values to different degree of freshwater prawn farming sustainability between the East and West coast of peninsular Malaysia. Questionnaires pertaining demographical information and farming practices were given to 15 farmers in 8 different states and the result from the questionnaire shows that there are four major constraints faced by the farmers which are financial, geographical, environmental pollution and legal constraints. Though none of the constraints are unique to any region of the peninsular, some of them are more prominently severe compared to the other in one region and taking into account the different weight of each constraint, it is found that the farmers on the East coast which faces a significant amount of constraints regarding financial and geographical suffers from a higher possibility of non-sustainability in their business.
