Local fishing in Chao Phraya provides significant income for the communities along the river. However, the river fishery is becoming less popular for new generations due to low income generation and less availability of fish due to poorer water quality and land-use changes that affect the fish population.Locations:Ang Thong-Chao Phraya River-Southeast Asia-ThailandDate:19 Aug, 2010Credit:© John Novis / GreenpeaceMaximum size:5616px X 3744pxKeywords:Asian ethnicities-Boats-Canals-Chemical industry-Day-Death-Fish-KWCI (GPI)-Local population-One person-Outdoors-River dumping-River pollution-Rivers-Toxics (campaign title)-Water pollution-Wharfs (Docks)-WomenShoot:Chao Phraya River DocumentationRiver and water use documentation of the Chao Phraya river. The Chao Phraya River basin is the largest in Thailand, draining approximately 30% of thecountry. Along its course this river passes through several cities, including Bangkok, andultimately flows into the Upper Gulf of Thailand. After passing through Bangkok, and before entering the Gulf, the Chao Phraya flows through Samut Prakan Province. A number of large canals connect to the Chao Phraya in this province, an area that houses a wide range of industrial facilities. A recent Greenpeace report reveals hazardous chemicals in the discharges from these factories, and high levels of toxic pollution in the canals. The study shows the presence of heavy metals, hormone disrupting chemicals, and human carcinogens in water and sediments.
