Traditional fishing methods of Africa
Fishing is one of the most ancient forms of hunting and has spawned an astonishing variety of innovative methods and equipment used to outwit and catch fishes and other aquatic animals. Traditional fishing methods of Africa addresses a much neglected but very important part of Africa’s technological heritage: its indigenous fishing technologies.
These ancient technologies, developed and used over a period of 10 000 years, are still in use in rural Africa today to harvest aquatic resources in a sustainable way. This has ignited renewed interest in their potential to encourage long-term and sustainable use of fish stocks. Brilliantly illustrated and clearly written, this book serves as a perfect introduction to a fascinating topic that will enhance your appreciation of indigenous knowledge systems in Africa.
