Fish Scarcity & Canola Crops

Tonle Sap Lake in the heart of Cambodia is the largest freshwater lake in Southeast Asia. The fish from these waters feed millions across Southeast Asia–or at least, used to. A combination of development, drought, and climate change has devastated the lake, threatening the livelihood of those who depend on this body of water. Climate change is also affecting canola crop yields, causing the seedpods to open too early. Research into how to protect canola can give insight into how to protect other crops from heat waves, such as Brussel sprouts, cabbage, kale, and turnips.
