Fishery Resources Management and Analysis of the Possibility of Implementing Collaborative Governance at Tonle Sap Lake, Cambodia
研究論文 Research Paper
At Cambodia’s Tonle Sap Lake, due to the construction of many dams in the Mekong River basin, the ecological environment of fish reproduction, habitat and migration have been destroyed, and fishery production has been declining year by year. This has led to increasingly serious conflicts among lake residents for fishery resources. In the past few years, WorldFish has cooperated with local fishing villages to implement collaborative governance action research programs in order to resolve these conflicts. The experimental results of collaborative governance in these pilot fishing villages have been quite effective. In order to further understand the current condition of fishery resource management in other non-pilot fishing villages, this study chose a floating village in Siem Reap Province to conduct qualitative research to explore the possibility of implementing collaborative governance. Based on the analysis of field surveys and interview data, then referring to the research results of WorldFish, this study puts forward some suggestions, to hopefully be used as a reference basis for introducing collaborative governance approaches and solving the problem of fishery resources competition at Tonle Sap Lake.
