Vientiane, Lao PDR, 23rd Apr 2015

This edition of Catch and Culture looks at Cham Muslim fishing communities on the Bassac River, declines in catches of some large and medium-sized species in the Tonle Sap River and the the last temporary breeding station for an endangered carp on the mainstream of the Mekong in northeast Thailand. It also examines recent developments with aquaculture in the Mekong Delta in Viet Nam, illegal brush-park fisheries in Cambodia and how gender training has transformed lives in a Lao fishing village.
