Perceptions of gender dynamics in small‐scale fisheries and conservation areas in the Pursat province of Tonle Sap Lake, Cambodia

The authors investigated whether there were differences between men’s and women’s perceptions of (i) fishing and non‐fishing practices; (ii) power, access and control over fishing resources; and (iii) perceptions towards conservation and conservation areas in Pursat, Cambodia. They interviewed fishers and key informants, and found differences in perceptions of fishing and non‐fishing practices between fishermen and fisherwomen.
