  • EXTINCTION: Six decades after the introduction of Nile perch, there are more nets in the lake than fish
  • Nearly 22 years since the Nile perch was first exported from Tanzania, the situation is alarming following a sharp decline in stocks in Lake Victoria caused by, among other factors, overfishing and other unsustainable harvesting methods
