Based on modern limnology and environmental research, syntheses of the composition, functions and production of pelagic ecosystems are being provided in the Great Lakes of Africa. Special attention is given to Lake Tanganyika and recent research activities. New findings on relationships between lake hydrophysics, climatic patterns and biological productivity are presented. The roles of organic matters and microbes are discussed.
The implications of environmental and fishery research on regional fisheries management are presented, together with the outcomes of the recent major research projects in lakes Tanganyika and Malawi, particularly in practical fisheries development.
