The Chonburi Inland Fisheries Research and Development Center steadily has been releasing plant-eating fish into the lake for years. It also has been raising butter catfish since 1990.
Due to the predatory snakehead (shown here), Bangphra Reservoir has seen a steady decline in the number of other fish.
The fishing contest will run from 5 a.m. to 5 p.m. In addition to competing for the Governor’s Cup, the fishermen can enjoy a long-drum performance, exhibits on marine preservation and sales of locally made products.
