The report is the fisheries and aquaculture productions in reservoirs in Laos. The overall aim of this report is to provide better information on reservoir fisheries and aquaculture so that reservoirs will be planned and managed to provide a broader range of benefits, particularly to rural people living nearby. The report is synthesising and will publish and disseminate what is known about fisheries and aquaculture in reservoirs in Laos, and has also carried out field surveys to describe the fisheries of several existing reservoirs, as well as the types of aquaculture operations that can benefit in and downstream of reservoirs. The project has also investigated some of the issues and problems confronting fishers and fish farmers who depend upon reservoirs for their livelihoods, as well as attempting to estimate the size and value of fisheries and aquaculture production from reservoirs.
