I watched with great interest. Glad to see they don't over harvest the lake. Also helped me understand why some fish may be "expensive" when purchased here in the states. Hard to balk at the price when you understand what it took to make certain fish available in the first place.
Great info....thanks for sharing.

Interesting. Bit I do not get is why breeding them lake side is supposed to protect them.
As she says even when harvesting for the hobby they take only a fraction of what the local fishermen do for food.
You know I talk with folk who refuse to believe many Tang cichlids are pond bred in Burundi.
The numbers quoted seem pretty big to me.
And selection etc makes pond bred cichlids different to WC.
She says folk prefer them but then I guess that's the business model they have chosen so she would say that.
Interesting that she says they charge a high price for genuine large WC. :wink:

All the best James
