To analyze how changing temperatures alter households’ fishing behavior, the authors examined fishing effort and fish catch in a major inland fishery. They used longitudinal observational data from households in Cambodia, which has the highest per-capita consumption of inland fish in the world. Higher temperatures caused households to reduce their participation in fishing but had limited net effects on fish catch.
