Cambodia – Fishermen Suffer Due To Regression In Water Level In Tonle Sap Lake
The Tonle Sap Lake- Pursat Province- Cambodia 25/09/2020
Fishermen on the Tonle Sap Lake, in the northern Pursat province, suffer from difficult living conditions due to the regression in the water of the lake, which led to the reduction of fish they catch and depend on as their only source of living. About 300 families in the Reang Teul community live in floating houses mainly live by fishing. A number of fishermen expressed their concern about the lack of fish in the lake, referring the reason for the decline in water levels to the fact that China and Vietnam closed the dams.
