In 2014, the Inland Fisheries Research and Development Institute of the Cambodian Ministry of Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries undertook a study of the consumption of fish and other aquatic animals by women and pre-school children. The study, supported by Oregon State University through the University of Connecticut under the AquaFish Innovation Lab program, covered 300 women and 343 children in three provinces – Stung Treng and Prey Veng on the Mekong River and Kampong Thom on the Tonle Sap Lake. Interviews over two weeks in June estimated food intake over the previous 24 hours. Evaluations of energy, macronutrients and micronutrients were made using the ASEAN Food Composition Table. To determine nutritional adequacy, nutrient intake was compared with the Recommended Dietary Allowances for Southeast Asia [1st paragraph of introduction]
