Two men standing on a dock throw a net over the edge into water.

Men throw cast nets into a water body in Pursat province, Cambodia. In rural Cambodia, people eat fish 4-5 times per week – more often than any other meat. 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, this project will benefit over 290,000 fishing families in four provinces of rural Cambodia. Photo credit: Fani Llauradó / WorldFish.
