The water of its main drainage, the Tonlé Sap River, is being pushed back from the Mekong carrying an incredible amount of water from the rains, causing the river to reverse its direction and thus causing the lake to overflow, flooding nearby fields and forests and supporting an extraordinarily rich and diverse eco-system. The Lake is also an important breeding ground for fish, providing more than half of the fish consumed in Cambodia. The particular water system requires that the people living of the lake adapt to the living conditions.
