About this book

Language: English

The Songkhram River is a large tributary of the Mekong River which runs through the northern part of northeast Thailand. The river system supports a large but previously undescribed capture fishery. This survey covered villages within the lower one-third of the Songkhram River Basin, where extensive wetlands are associated with the most productive fisheries. The survey used two approaches (i) a census (by questionnaire) of all village leaders, to provide a broad coverage of the Lower Songkhram River Basin, and (ii) a sample survey carried out by surveyors within 27 randomly selected villages that covered 353 households.

The survey showed clearly that fishing is of considerable importance for people living in the lower Songkhram River Basin, despite rice farming being the main full-time occupation. Typically, households include rice-farmers and part-time fishers, but the importance of fishing is under-recognised officially.

A number of recommendations from the findings of this study are presented in this report as suggestions to agencies with an interest in the lower Songkhram River Basin.
