Two men load the takes from bamboo fish traps into large white buckets.

Fishermen in Pursat, Cambodia collect the fish caught in their bamboo fish traps from the surrounding seasonally-flooded rice fields. Thanks to the USAID-funded Feed the Future Cambodia Rice Field Fisheries II project, people in 140 communities are trained and resourced to improve and protect fish habitats. This in turn helps to protect local fish from climate shocks and illegal fishing, thus helping to secure a valuable public resource for future generations. By 2021, the project will benefit over 290,000 people in four provinces of rural Cambodia. Photo credit: Fani Llauradó / WorldFish.
