Abstract: "In 2001 the Government of Cambodia adopted community fisheries as a new form of resource management. A project called 'Participatory Natural Resource Management in the Tonle Sap Region' has been working to develop and promote community-based natural resource management on the north shore of the Tonle Sap lake in the province of Siem Reap. This project has been instrumental in developing the community fisheries approach and has sparked off a reform process within the inland fishery sector that has resulted in around 536,000 hectares (ha) of commercial fishing ground-equivalent to 56 per cent of all commercial fishing grounds-being released to local communities for community fisheries management."
