Last Day with Fisheries

Posted by: | Comments (0)

One of the great things about our time in Cambodia is that we have such a good working relationship with our colleagues in Fisheries.  From day one they have made us very welcome, invited us to parties and to family outings. Together we have worked hard on projects aimed at improving the lives of the poor and disadvantaged fisheries communities. This has included setting up Fisheries Information Centres to advise people on improving fish processing techniques, reducing spoilage and improving the safety of preserved fish.  Hopefully this will mean more food for the poor without having to take any more fish from the rivers and lake.  In the long run Cambodia may be able to export fish around the world thus raising the living standards of the fishing communities.

Our last day with Fisheries was a typically happy occasion full of jokes and good humour.  Our colleagues took us out to new restaurant where fish, prawns and squid, what else, along with meat, mushrooms, noodles and vegetables are cooked in steaming pots of stock on the tables.

The speeches were touching and we felt very grateful to have worked with such a wonderful group of people doing something that we both thought was important. We will certainly miss Cambodia and all our friends there.

The old road twists through the jungle. Its rough surface throws up clouds of choking dust. The new road should be completed by the end of 2008.
