Abstract.Tonle Sap Great Lake in Cambodia, the largest natural freshwater lake in southeast Asia, is situated within the floodplain of the Mekong River. Water levels in the lake vary by about 8 m between the dry season minimum and the wet season maximum when waters from the Mekong River back up the Tonle Sap River. The lake is highly productive – the annual fish catch from the Lake is estimated at between about 180,00–250,000 tonnes while the dai fishery on Tonle Sap River annually harvests… Expand
