Wonders of the Mekong

Our team recently got the opportunity to tag a 300-kilo Giant Freshwater Stingray on the banks of the Mekong River in Cambodia. The Wonders of the Mekong project along with the Cambodian Fisheries Administration established a network of fishers who agreed to report catches of giant and endangered fish. On June 13, WOM staff and scientists got a call that fishers had caught a stingray that was even larger than a previous one we had helped released. Fortunately, our work to establish a network of acoustic receivers in the Mekong River was occurring at the same time, and we were able to fit the record-breaking giant stingray with an acoustic tag. As the stingray passes our network of 36 receivers, we’ll be able to collect data on its migration and behavior for the first time.
