    Plan cadre d'aménagement des pêcheries du lac Tanganyika: historique, considerations politiques et principaux elements 1999

    1. Le lac Tanganyika (carte, Figure 1) héberge l’une des plus grandes pêcheries intérieures en Afrique, deuxième en volume de production après le lac Victoria (FAO 1995a). Par conséquent, il représente une source importante de nourriture et un moyen de vie pour des millions d’habitants vivant dans et autour de son bassin. Le lac et ses environs supportent une activité commerciale et de subsistance très large ainsi qu’un ensemble remarquable de flore et de faune tropicale incluant de gr andes populations diverses de poisson endémiques et ceci dans un décor tout à fait remarquable. La valeur de conservation du lac est par conséquent, d’une très grande importance (Beadle 1981; Coulter 1991; Hanek 1994; Hanek et Craig 1996; Quan 1996). 2. Parmi les grands intérêts au-dessus du statut environnemental, la biodiversité menacée et une surexploitation de ce lac unique, des efforts ont été déployés depuis 1992 à travers le projet de recherche sur le lac Tanganyika (RLT) proj et (GCP/RAF/271/FIN) pour mener des investigations sur la production biologique du lac et le potentiel des pêches et d’imaginer les modalités d’un aménagement potentiel sur une base régionale de ses ressources en poisson afin de pouvoir servir les générations présentes et futures et les besoins de conservation....

    This document contains the papers presented at the Symposium on Biology, Stock Assessment and Exploitation of Small Pelagic Fish Species in the African Great Lakes Region. The symposium, jointly organized by the FINNIDA/FAO/AGFUND project Research for the management of fisheries on Lake Tanganyika (LTR) and the FAO/UNDP project Inland Fisheries Planning, Development and Management in Eastern/Central/Southern Africa (IFIP), was held in Bujumbura, Burundi from 25 to 28 November 1992. The Lakes a nd Reservoirs included in the 20 Symposium papers are Itezhi-Tezhi, Mweru-Luapula, Malawi, Kariba, Kibu, Tanganyika and Victoria. The small pelagic species treated are Limnothrissa miodon, Stolothrissa tanganicae, Rastrineobola argentea, Poecilothrissa moeruensis and Engraulicypris sardella. The topics covered include biology, life history, growth and mortality and various aspects of the fisheries.Small body size is a feature of Limnothrissa miodon in the man-made Lakes Kariba and Cahora Bassa. Recent reliable determinations of their growth confirm the earlier very high estimates of their mortality. These high mortality rates are consistent with the small body size of the fish. A similar allometric relationship applies to the production/biomass ratios. Because most fish die after a few months there is no relationship between fishing effort and catch. Regulating effort may therefore contribute little to the management of this stock. The greatest risk to the fishery is a collapse of recr uitment and there is an urgent need to understand the factors that regulate reproduction.

    This document is the final report of the tenth session of the Committee for Inland Fisheries of Africa (CIFA) Sub-Committee for Lake Tanganyika, which was held in Lusaka, Zambia, from 28 to 31 October 2003. The major topics discussed were: status of Lake Tanganyika fisheries by national sectors; application of the FAO Code of Conduct for responsible fisheries in the management of Lake Tanganyika and for the control and responsible use of alien species in the lake basin; collaboration between FAO and other Lake Tanganyika partners in the fisheries programmes and projects; and future role of the FAO CIFA Sub-Committee in the context of the Lake Tanganyika Convention. The summary of the main recommendations and decisions is shown in Appendix E.
