Cambodian Seagrass

Marine Conservation Cambodia


Seagrass Conservation Project at Marine Conservation Cambodia – working to conserve the existing seagrass meadows in Cambodia’s coastal waters, and provide protection for them to extend and expand, thereby supporting local fishers and coastal communities which rely on seagrass resources.

Seagrasses are angiosperms found in shallow marine and estuarine waters. In the Kep archipelago, seagrasses inhabit subtidal areas (<5m) with sand, mud and silt substrates. Seagrass structures; green leaves, shoots, roots and rhizomes, play key roles in coastal social-ecological systems.
