Prek Toal
Preserved forest, fishing boon, feather symphony and floating villages -- a delicate balance

Réserve de Biosphère

The inundated forest of Prek Toal has been designated as a core area (21,000 ha) of the Tonle Sap Biosphere Reserve based on its botanical diversity and its nesting colonies of threatened waterbirds. The core area (zone 1 in the map) is in theory dedicated to biodiversity conservation but is actually intensely exploited as a commercial fishing concession. The fishing lot covers no less than 50,000 ha (red delineated area on the map) and is the most productive and lucrative of the lake with a value in fish estimated at half-million dollars per year.
