Climate change blamed vanishing fish Lake Tanganyika | News24
This problem is longstanding and complex. It can solely be blamed on climate change because it has been an ongoing problem for nearly 100 years. It is a combination of over fishing and yes rising water temperatures in the lake. None of this changes the reality that Lake Tanganyika is a major source of food and income in the region and is the heart of the economy of Burundi and the Eastern Congo.
Miami - Fish are becoming more scarce in Africa's oldest and deepest lake, Lake Tanganyika, because of climate warming, not just overfishing, US researchers said this week.
The study on Lake Tanganyika, which covers parts of Tanzania, Burundi and the Democratic Republic of Congo, relied on sediment samples drilled from the lake bed and going back 1 500 years to analyse the changing biodiversity.
