The photo shows two man-paddle canoes of length 3-5m long at the Kpong landing site in the Lower Manya Krobo District of the Eastern Region of Ghana.

Dominating some section of the Volta Lake is in the area is massive aquatic weed growth. These have over the past few decades posed a lot of environmental concerns both to the fisher folks who live along the periphery of the catchment as well as other stake holders in the fishery industry.

Although, occasionally these water weeds are removed to be used as compost by some commercial farms in the area, the nuisance caused by these water weeds still lingers on.
