Transboundary fisheries management issues in the Mekong and Sekong Rivers

This publication was jointly produced by the National Mekong Committees of Cambodia and Lao PDR, with technical support from the MRC Secretariat. It is an output of the Mekong and Sekong Rivers Fisheries Management Project under the MRC’s Mekong Integrated Water Resources Management Project (M-IWRMP), which has been supported by the Australian Government and the World Bank.

This report examines fisheries management issues in the Mekong and Sekong Rivers along the borders of the two neighbors. It identifies exploitative fishing practices, habitat degradation, and lack of fisheries data and their sharing as the main obstacles that need to be addressed.
