Vientiane, Lao PDR, 1st Dec 2011
This edition looks at the damage to Thai aquaculture industry caused by Thailand's worst floods in half a century, efforts to rebuild stocks of the once-abundant giant freshwater prawn in the Tonle Sap and the discovery of a new species of walking catfish in Viet Nam. In addition, it examines the impacts of climate change on floods and fisheries, the expanding business of a Thai food conglomerate in Viet Nam and the potential for aquaculture in Cambodia. The latest edition also covers recent management changes at the Thai Department of Fisheries and regional efforts to train gender trainers.
