Fishes at the Mekong Falls / Laos

At the beginning of dry season at the end of October / early November other fish species are migrating riverupwards from Cambodia. They come to the 4000 Islands to spawn. Local fishermen catch a critical part of them for their own needs or to sell them to the markets of other places, including the biggest city around, what is Pakse.

Over the duration of the dry season other fish species arrive here, either to spawn or to make their way further riverupwards to spawn there. The locals catch many of them in simple but big bamboo traps. The fish who migrate along are middle-sized or big fish species.

Also the rare Irrawaddy Dolphin lives south of the 4000 Islands.
