Really enjoyed the video....what great ingenuity to beat those poachers!

Would love to see some video like that from Lake Victoria.

It seems I have some editing to do on this site still. The Youtube function I installed is not functioning the way it was intended. I will get it fixed and post the video the way it should be.

Ad Konings has been discussing the problems in Lake Malawi in his talks lately. I understand that this was the subject of his talk at FOTAS and I got to hear it at the Ohio Cichlid Association Extravaganza a couple weeks ago.

It seems that the local Malawi fisherman are actually in favor of the net shredders (to stop the fisherman from the other village) in these protected areas near several islands. They've noticed an increase in their catch outside the protected areas since the fish can breed in the protected areas
