In this issue, we examine the economic value of Lower Mekong fisheries, the growing importance of aquaculture in world fisheries production and Southeast Asia’s largest ornamental fish market. We also look at a recent catfish deal between Viet Nam and the US, a slowdown in the decline of the Mekong’s dolphin population and genetic considerations in culture-based fisheries.
