The fisheries of the Lower Mekong Basin are undoubtedly essential to the tens of millions of people who rely on fish as their main source of food and income. Indeed, it has been estimated that the current yield of fish and other aquatic animals from the Lower Mekong Basin is about 3 million tonnes per year. This is a resource of immense importance.
