Water Hyacinth

This notorious weed, that clogs waterways and suffocates fisheries, is not only edible in part, but is also a valuable renewable resource exploited by some of the lakeside inhabitants and those living on the Tonle Sap, itself. Cambodians are a resourceful people; they braid it into hammocks, and weave it into a multitude of useful items, such as sandals, handbags, baskets, mats, and seat covers.
