The area we need to focus on the most is where the Mekong River tributaries meet the sea, including the river basin and the coastal waters, as these areas are rich in diversity. Anadromous species, those that live most of their lives in the sea but migrate into freshwater areas to spawn; catadromous are the opposite, meaning they live in freshwater but spawn in the sea; potamodromous species are those living entirely in freshwater but have to migrate long distances through river networks to spawn or hunt. Take pangasius krempfi (cá bông lau) for example, it’s a freshwater fish but it migrates to the sea in certain phrases of its life.
