Appendix D. Summary of major recommendations

For the attention of Governments

Specific recommendations for the Malawi sector

For the deepwater Cichlids:

1. Monitoring;
2. reduction of fishing effort in the southeast arm of the lake;
3. enforcement of regulations; and
4. more research.

Concerning Cyprinids:

1. integrated management of the relevant river basins;
2. monitoring;
3. more applied research;
4. public awareness;
5. control of effort; and
6. enforcement of regulations.

Regarding Utaka (Haplochromis):

1. more research (biology, taxonomy etc);
2. monitoring; and
3. control of effort.

In the case of Chambo (Tilapias):

1. a Chambo restoration strategic plan with monitoring;
2. enforcement of regulations;
3. habitat restoration;
4. more research;
5. control of effort; and
6. public awareness and education.

For the Mbuna (ornamental fishes):

1. more applied research;
2. monitoring;
3. enforcement of regulations;
4. integrated catchment area management; and
5. control of effort.

Specific rcommendations for Mozambique

For the large Cyprinids:

1. institute effort control measures;
2. promote public awareness
3. conduct biological studies
4. implement integrated management on relevant river basins

Regarding institutional capacity

1. take the necessary measures to upgrade infrastructure;

For fisheries research

1. disseminate research findings

Specific recommendations for the Tanzania sector

1. capacity building in data collection;
2. monitoring control and surveillance to build capacity for effective control;
3. develop a management plan;
4. establishing co-management approach in the management of the fisheries and environment;
5. establish mechanism to collect socio-economic data, information and dissemination;
6. establish mechanisms to sustain the mbuna (ornamental fish) fishery; and
7. consider possibilities of restocking the cyprinids where local over fishing has occurred

Recommendations for implementing at regional level

Open acess

Appendix E. The status and distribution of some exploited fish stocks on the Lake

Management key species

Distribution (localized/lake wide/unknown)

Status of stocks

Threats to the stock

Knowledge on stock

Intervention

Usipa Engraulicypris

Lake wide

· Unpredictable

· Fluctuating

Inadequate knowledge

Reproductive biology unknown

Applied research

Pelagic Cichlids (Ndunduma; Mcheni)

Lake wide

Underexploited

Currently none

Adequate to make an informed decision

Encourage appropriate exploitation - technology

Deepwater Cichlids (Chisawasawa - Lethrinop)

Lake wide/localized populations

Potential exploitation in some areas

· Theoretically not threatened in Tanzania and Mozambique.

Malawi localized overfishing

· In Mozambique and Tanzania not known1

· In Malawi, knowledgeable the knowledge is regionally transposable

Monitoring of stock

Cyprinids (Large Mpasa, Sanjika, Ntchila)

Lake wide - Localized river mouths - rivers that are spawning

Generally declining. In some areas the species is seriously depleted e.g. Ntchila

Environmental degradation, siltation of spawning grounds; increased sedimentation

Currently poor

Effort control - dependent on area2

Utaka Haplochromis Copadichromis

Lake wide (but localized in underwater out crops [Virundi])

· Stable in Mozambique and Tanzania sectors

· Heavily exploited in some areas in Malawi

Currently none

Poor knowledge currently

Integrated catchment management - agriculture/forestry/wildlife/lands/water sectors

Catfish (Mlamba)/Kampunga/Bombe)

Lake wide

Stable

Potential overfishing

· Malawi work confined to southern part of Lake.

· Mozambique relatively

Applied research

Chambo "Tilapias"

Localized

· Malawi - Overfished

· Mozambique - Relatively stable (Virgin)

· Tanzania - Declining

Destructive gear3; overfishing; illegal, habitat degradation (environmental degradation)

Basic knowledge for appropriate decision - making available.

More research

Inshore cichlids (Kambuzi)

Localized

Same as for Chambo

Same as for Chambo

Lower than for Chambo

Find and address the known threats

Mbuna Ornamental fish

Extremely localized in rocky areas

Unknown

Translocation, hybridize, Illegal fishing - diving Poor knowledge on available stock

Unknown

Find and address the known threats

NB: Suggest on implementation of recommendation.

Reflect on information shared in previous meetings, implementation of previous projects - implement recommendations.

1 Regional abundance and location

2 Promote sanctuary areas.

3 Mosquito nets, other small-meshed gears

Appendix F. Regional issues, strategies and interventions to be addressed by the riparian countries

Issue

Strategy

Interventions

1. Capacity building and harmonization of data collection, processing and dissemination.

Standardize assessment system

Regional level training of catch data collection. Develop database for lake fisheries and socio-economic data.

2. Harmonized legislation.

Determine issues for legal harmonization.

Define geographically the area for harmonized legislation concerning pollution, introduction of exotics, aquaculture practices.

3. Fisheries information networking.

Scientific information sharing and establish a forum for scientists to share experiences.

Establish research forum to discuss scientific findings. Review and update data collection systems.

4. Reduce pressure on inshore fishery.

Work out options for pelagic fishery exploitation.

Undertake studies to identify viable alternative livelihoods and income generating activities (IGAs).

5. Inadequate information on the magnitude of pelagic stocks.

Stock assessment of the various pelagics.

Assessing and monitoring of pelagic stocks.

6. Aquatic weeds infestation.

Aquatic weed control.

Identify environmental friendly methods, for containing the weeds.
