Abstract:This report on the structure of the fishery in Lake Mweru/Luapula River in northern Zambia is based on a survey held from June to August 1992 among some 9,000 fishers, half of whom operate from the lake, the other half from the riverine area. The report deals with the physical environment, fishing methods, fish species, the fishers, workers and boats, female fishers, and the ethnic composition of the fishing population, as well as with the distribution of fishing activities and gear and with the management of the Mweru-Luapula fishery.
