nets to catch the same amount of fish in Rainy Season which in return would destroy the quality of the River by using illegal nets and other fishing methods. Apart from looking into the Environmental issues and having to deal with illegal fishing, The Kampong Phluk came up with an idea of Conserving the Fish which leads us to the topic of Fish Conservation, First of all, let’s start off by quickly knowing why They set it up, well basically they want to protect and to keep an area safe and not to let the fishers fish anywhere they want if not the fishes might not be able to serve the village in the long term so we can say that it can act as a “Backup Plan” for the Community. Like for example, in the River, A community of Officers are located at the start of the village to prevent other people from illegal fishing and to protect the fishes at that protected area.

6. Conclusion and Recommendations In conclusion, Cambodia’s inland capture fisheries are among the largest in the world. The Tonle Sap lake and Tonle Sap River are known as the world’s most productive inland fisheries, providing about 75 percent of Cambodia’s inland fish catch with an annual fish harvest of at least 400,000 tones. Cambodia’s inland fisheries are very importance to the livelihoods of rural people and to the national economy. Because many fish stock are shared both inside the country and exported to neighboring countries, Cambodia fisheries are of regional importance. For example, Kampong Phluk village. Kampong Phluk is a village in Siem Reap province in northern-central Cambodia. It is a village built on stilts on the Tonle Sap. The community largely depends on fishing for survival. All of the people there are spending Cambodia’s wet season (May-October) fishing and during the dry season (November-April) as the river went down, many of them turn to farming to supply their daily income. Tourism, also plays an importance in Kampong Phluk village. People who visit the village will pay for the service it includes transportation, food, and more. Since fish is the most important product in the community, the chief village have made some fisheries management to improve and reduce the impact of this sector. For instant, they have told their people not to destroy the Prey Kok forest which is the source of fish nest and more others inland animals. Moreover, they have built a fish conservation area which help the number of fishes to be sustainable for their people. In the last few years fishing pressure in Kampong phluk village is generally high and increasing. More valuable fish species are becoming less abundant in catches. This happen due to the illegal fishing, overfishing from both Cambodian and Vietnamese fisher, water pollution, population growth and more.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
