Conservation of Wild Fish Populations

Traditionally, those villages which fish from waterways for consumption or sale often have had village-managed systems for conserving natural populations of fish. Today, many villages no longer have such a system for a variety of reasons. In the target villages of the project, one village, Vangma, has maintained such a traditional system. Other villages in the project area, specifically those villages bordering the Nam Sang River, have approached the project with requests for assistance in developing a system. The project has begun, in consultation with the World Wildlife Fund for Nature, to implement a system of village-based fish conservation which seeks to ensure a sustainable supply of economically important fish, while at the same time promoting the conservation of ecologically-important species.
