Fish drying in Burundi

Credit: Alain Murekambanze (Burundi)

Drying of fish is done as shown in the photos on raised racks or meshes and relates mainly small fish such as Lake Tanganyika sprat (Stolothrissa tanganicae) and Lake Tanganyika sardine (Limnothrissa miodon). Fish are exposed to the sun for a period of 1 to 3 days depending on weather conditions, until they are relatively dry and can be sold in the markets in the long distance.
