Hydrobiological aspects of fisheries in small reservoirs in the Sahel region by Etienne Baijot, Jacques Moreau and Sana Bouda 1997 238pp ISBN 92 9081 1382 credit points 80 CTA
This book records the results of eight years of research on small and medium-sized reservoirs in Burkina Faso. The main aim of the work was to study reservoirs which, though originally created for various purposes other than commercial fishing, have progressively come to support this activity as the main source of income for many people. Research carried out mainly by the International Centre for Living Aquatic Resources Management (ICLARM) led to the development of methods for fish population analysis that are particularly relevant to tropical waters. Surveys of economic and cultural aspects of the various fish exploitation schemes helped to point out the necessity for understanding the dynamics of fish communities. These surveys also demonstrated that seasonal, small-scale fisheries had a significant impact on the micro-economy of the households involved, especially in periods of severe shortages of income from other sources. This book provides much information of general interest on small-scale reservoir fisheries. Although it gives particular emphasis to Burkina Faso it also includes a vast collection of literature relevant to any sub-Sahelian body of water. The book will be of interest to researchers, university lecturers, policy makers and planners, and public organization and NGO managers.
