Earthworm Water Hyacinth Project Vietnam – From 2012, Anphu earthworm Co.,Ltd has launched campaign to help poor farmer along river to take water-hyacinth to raise earthworm.

Water-hyacinth blocks waterways and limits boat traffic, recreation, flood control and wildlife use. By producing a dense canopy at the water surface, this exotic pest plant shades out native submersed plant species and can uproot native emergent species that are important to wildlife
What animal eats water hyacinth?
