Fisheries Survey Luangprabang Province, Lao PDR

The Fisheries Survey was carried out in a random sample of 27 villages in Luangprabang Province, which is situated in Northern Lao PDR, between May and August 1999. 5 LARReC staff and 9 provincial and district staff did it, with technical support from the AMFC. The survey is one of a number to be implemented by LARReC in selected areas in the Mekong River Basin of Lao PDR, with the assistance of the Assessment of Mekong Fisheries Component AMFC (1997-2003) under the Mekong River Commission Fisheries Program, in conjunction with relevant government agencies. , The objective of the survey is to provide mainly quantitative and also qualitative information on fisheries (including the collection of aquatic animals) in Northern Lao PDR exemplified by Luangprabang Province. Basic fisheries related information at village, household and individual level has been collected. The information includes the degree of participation by people in, and their dependence on, fisheries and collection of aquatic animals, the absolute and relative economic importance of fishing in rural people's livelihoods, and information on fishing gears, fishing activities, fishing grounds and fish consumption. This report presents analysis of the main features of the data; for further analysis the full data set is available on CD-ROM. ,
