In Cambodia, water covers approximately 30% of the land. Fish and other aquatic animals contribute 80% of animal protein in the typical Cambodian diet and fisheries provide income and livelihoods to 46% of the total population.

WorldFish focuses its research in Cambodia on:

  • Increasing productivity and investment in the fisheries sector.
  • Identifying and promoting policies and practices to increase the resilience of fisheries.
  • Increasing the benefits to poor people from fisheries value chains.
  • Improving land and water management.
