Abstract: "Fish and fishing rights are the life of the Cambodian poor. Equitable and just distribution of these resources with the long-term limited management is how 85 percent of Cambodian people in rural areas maintain food security. "Cambodia is rich with fisheries resources because she has huge flooded plains along the length of the Mekong River, around the Tonle Sap, the northeast, and the south of Phnom Penh city. These flooded plains are important habitats for national fish and spawn. The seasonal movements of fish occur between these flooded plains, spawning habitats in the Mekong River, the northeast rivers of Cambodia and the south of Laos"
