Raising Awareness of Local Communities on Habitats and Fishery Resources Enhancement

The SEAFDEC-Sweden Project through SEAFDEC/TD in collaboration with Rak Talay Nomklao Conservation Group and local communities of Laem Klad Sub-district and adjacent areas of Trat Bay, Trat Province, Thailand, organized a one-day event on 7 October 2018 to promote Habitat and Fisheries Resources Enhancement. More than 100 persons representing their respective groups participated in the event, which included activities on sea grass planting and preparation and deployment of Fish Enhancing Devices (FEDs). They recognized the importance of enhancing the fishery resources and their natural habitats for sustainability of the livelihoods in coastal communities that rely on the sustainable utilization of the fishery resources. Laem Klad Sub-district, Muang Trat is one of the areas where coastal communities receive support from SEAFDEC and the SEAFDEC-Sweden Project in several of their activities over the past few years. This area embraces coastal habitats of fishery resources particularly mangroves and sea grass beds, which serve as spawning and nursery grounds of aquatic resources.
