Eutrophication of the East African Great Lakes
AuthorMsomphora, Mbachi Ruth
Several of the African Great Lakes are distinctive for their very long water residence time >100 years. Incoming nutrients will be retained within the lakes and recovery will be slow even if inputs are reduced. While changes in chemistry and plankton composition of Lake Malawi have not been extreme to date, strong eutrophication is already happening in Lake Victoria, where damage has reduced its biological wealth and human misery may follow (Baskin, 1992). It could be advisable to prevent this happening to Lake Malawi and Tanganyika.
This is chapter 21 of the book "Drainage basin nutrient inputs and eutrophication: an integrated approach."

Dyspriani, Polite (Master thesis; Mastergradsoppgave, 2007-05-29)Shrimp world production in the last few years has shown very high growth rates. It is marked by an increasing of production volume, and by shifting from capture to aquaculture fisheries within the production system. This has occurred mostly regarding to the brackish water pond. For some years, the government has had to face hard choices in order to ensure shrimp aquaculture developed sustainable. ...
Pettersen, Ingrid Marie; Aaknes, Vilde Synnøve (Master thesis; Mastergradsoppgave, 2023-05-15)I dag er verdikjeden for fisk og skalldyr bygget opp rundt utnyttelse av et fåtall arter som kan fanges i store volum og med høy markedsverdi. Bruk av lite eller ikke utnyttede marine ressurser kan være en bærekraftig tilnærming for å innfri fremtidige krav og etterspørsel til fiskekonsum. Rødspette (Pleuronectes platessa) er den viktigste flatfisken i volum og verdi i europeiske fiskerier. Både ...
Nolde Nielsen, Kåre (Doctoral thesis; Doktorgradsavhandling, 2008-11-21)What is the relationship between science and politics? What should it be? How are their respective roles conceived and acted out in practice? Should science and politics be clearly separated? How? Are there cases in which they can be usefully mixed? What cases are those, and are there some ways of mixing that are better than others? This project explores such questions by examining relationships ...
