Vientiane, Lao PDR, 1st Aug 2016
In this issue, we look at findings from Cambodia's first-ever study of mollusc fisheries in the Tonle Sap Lake, Vietnamese research into whether catfish resistant to bacteria can also grow faster and how Australian work is helping to set priorities for restoring fish migration in Lao tributaries of the Mekong. We also examine efforts to address fisheries concerns towards the first mainstream hydropower project in the Lower Mekong Basin and how fishermen helped scientists unravel the mystery of the El Niño weather phenomenon.
