Developing habitat conservation suitable for Nam Xouang Reservoir, Vientiane Province, Lao PDR

A study was conducted in Nam Xouang Reservoir, Lao PDR, in 2018 to establish a fish conservation zone. Results showed that display boards and warning signs are an effective way to inform the local villagers about the fishing regulations and fish conservation zones. The participation of local fishing communities and local authorities might be necessary for the successful and sustainable management of the fisheries in the Nam Xouang Reservoir.
