CAST-Cambodia Restarts Technical Assistance with COVID Precautionary Measures

ASA’s Commercialization of Aquaculture for Sustainable Trade (CAST)-Cambodia is following the Royal Government of Cambodia’s guidelines and council to execute activities while managing the COVID-19 pandemic. Recent reports show no current cases of COVID in Cambodia, but the government and CAST remain vigilant.

While maintaining strict hygiene practices and social distancing, CAST is conducting direct farmer training and consultations. Some of CAST’s technical and association development team visited Mr. Sok Raden’s farm in Kampong Thom Province to share lessons and consult on harvesting techniques, pond preparations and farm planning. While there, the team devised a crop plan for one of Mr. Raden’s ponds to launch a demonstration of good aquaculture practices.

Mr. Raden is chair of the new Cambodian Aquaculture Association. He owns five ponds that cover several acres, which makes his farm a relatively large aquaculture enterprise and an excellent CAST partner.
