This photo shows a fisheries Officer doing collection of armoured catfish (Auchenoglanis occidentalis) from the wild. This species is still being studied at a Government aquaculture Research station in Luapula Province, for possible induced reproduction in captivity. This expensive fish species is favored by many people in Zambia.

Note: We decided not to watermark the photos in order not to upset its clarity. However, we trust you will notify us if you wish to use a picture or more. This is expected and will be appreciated.
