Abstract:In the 19th century the diet of the river people consisted mainly of fish and cassava. Most of the cassava came from the interior, while fish went inland to supplement the protein sources of the agricultural people. During the colonial period the demands for fish from Leopoldville and Brazzaville increased. The result was that fish which had formerly gone inland, now went to these cities, and the cassava was paid in money and manufactured goods. Map, notes, rés.
