About this book

Language: English with multilingual summary in English, Khmer, Lao, Thai, and Vietnamese

The farming of fish and other aquatic animals and plants or aquaculture is an increasingly important rural activity and source of food and income for people living in the Lower Mekong Basin. This paper reviews the status of inland aquaculture in the Lower Mekong Basin countries of Cambodia, Lao PDR, Thailand and Viet Nam. It identifies key factors shaping aquaculture development and provides recommendations to increase its future importance in food production and rural development in the basin. The information contained in this report came through written contributions from and consultations with Mekong aquaculture and rural development experts. An initial draft was prepared in 2001 for the Mekong River Commission (MRC) Fisheries Sector Review, and subsequently edited into this separate MRC Technical Paper on aquaculture. The paper provides a timely and important review of aquaculture as a significant means of food production and a contributor to rural livelihoods in the Lower Mekong Basin.
