Conserving Lake Tanganyika's fisheries and biodiversity:From local collaboration to lake-wide impact by Peter Limbu, The Nature Conservancy

January 8, 2018

Lake Tanganyika is the longest lake in the world and one of the last large lakes that still has a generally intact aquatic ecosystem. The Nature Conservancy's Tuungane project is working along Lake Tanganyika in western Tanzania to combat declining fish populations and conserve biodiversity though a broad range of initiatives, including helping to establish co-management institutions (Beach Management Units), creating community-supported freshwater protected areas, and working on reduction in the use of illegal gears.
