Cambodia on Monday (Feb 27) created Irrawaddy dolphin conservation and safety zones protecting a 120-km-long stretch of the Mekong River in northeastern Stung Treng and Kratie provinces, in response to a sub-decree.

Signed by Prime Minister Hun Sen, the sub-decree stated the protected zone for the uncommon animal included 35km in the principle channel of the Mekong River in Stung Treng and 85km in Kratie.

“Fishing have to be prohibited from the dolphin conservation and safety zones,” the sub-decree stated, including that vessels should not be allowed to journey on the velocity of greater than 30km per hour, whereas aquaculture can be banned.
