Lake Nangbéto freshwater fishery (Togo)

The two photos show a sample of fish catch from the artificial Nangbeto Lake in Togo. The principal fishery of the lake is attributed to the African butter catfish (Schibe mystus), Tilapia guineensis and Nile tilapia (Oreochromis niloticus). The annual fish catch from the lake ranges from 1500-2000 tons. Fishermen usually sell their catch to women fishers.

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.
