This is the third year that the Wonders of the Mekong Project, in collaboration with the Inland Fisheries Research and Development Institute, has collected endangered fish species such as Mekong giant catfish, Giant barb and other fish species from the Mekong River to rear in the Bati Seed Production and Research Station located in Peam Ror District, Prey Veng Province.

The rearing takes place until the fish are large enough to be healthy, and then the project tags them in order to monitor their growth and releases them back into the Mekong.

What a great project. Fish stocking can really work.
This may provide at least a partial remedy for the natural fish cycles that are going to be interrupted by the dams.

Let's hope they keep expanding this work to the next level, breeding.
And don't forget - National Fish Day every July 1.
