Fishing from the City of Stilts.

by Dominic Stafford

in Cambodia, the water level of the Tonle Sap is at its lowest in living history this year. The town of Kompong Khleang still brings home a lot of fish daily, however word about town is that the stocks seem very low. Each visit, the landing point seems to be different. This time it was at the foot of the town’s most central pagoda. Most of the catch is destined for Siem Reap, but a small amount will remain in Kompong Khleang. Fish and rice make up most of the local diet.
