Inland Fisheries Management in the Southeast Asian Region: Promoting Habitat Conservation in Lao PDR and Indonesia
MetadataShow full item record
The Southeast Asian region is endowed with enormous areas of inland waters resources, such as rivers, lakes, floodplains, reservoirs, dams, and wetlands. Fisheries in inland waters have long been a vital component of food security and livelihood for the local people living in the vicinity of inland water bodies. However, the inland waters are also utilized by other sectors such as water transportation and palm plantation that pollute the habitats, which would negatively impact the aquatic organisms and fishery production.
