Population dynamics and impact of trawling on the population structure of four key-indicator fish species in the South East arm of Lake Malawi

Abstract: 
A study to assess impact of trawling on fish species population and dynamics has been initiated in Lake Malawi. Population dynamics of four indicator species will be monitored and used as a proxy indicator of the status of fishery in Lake Malawi.
Une étude visant à évaluer l’impact du chalutage sur les espèces de poissons et la dynamique de la population a été lancée dans le lac Malawi. La dynamique des populations de quatre espèces indicatrices sera suivies et utilisées comme un indicateur de la situation de la pêche en lac Malawi.

About the RUFORUM 2010 Biennal Conference
"The 2010 RUFORUM Biennial Conference was the second in the series. The main objective of the Biennial conferences is to provide a platform for agricultural research for development stakeholders in Africa and beyond to actively exchange findings and experiences, while at the same time learning lessons towards improving performance of the agricultural sector and ultimately people’s livelihoods. The biennial conference is RUFORUM’s most comprehensive meeting for the diversity of stakeholders in agriculture. It is especially dedicated to graduate students and their supervisors, grantees in RUFORUM member universities and alumni. It is a platform for peer review, quality control, mentorship, networking and shared learning. This record contains an extended abstract accepted under the theme of Aqua Culture and Fisheries"
