Transboundary Conservation of the Critically Endangered Mekong Giant Catfish

Last updated:2008-04-24 00:00:00

One River, One Fishery, Two Countries& This programme of activities is an extension of the workplan of the ComFish project to support government agencies and local communities in the co-management of aquatic resources in the Mekong River. Specifically the project will seek to strengthen transboundary coordination between Bokeo and Chiang Rai provinces and the Department of Livestock and Fisheries (DLF) of Laos and the Department of Fisheries (DOF) of Thailand. Through transboundary dialogue and technical collaboration the project seeks to harmonize policies and technical approaches towards co-management of aquatic resources and conservation of the Mekong Giant Catfish (Pangasianodon gigas). Activities will follow the co-management approach to strengthen the capacity of government agencies and communities for the responsible use and management of capture fisheries, and to identify and protect spawning habitat of the Mekong Giant Catfish.
