Using Geophysics to Improve Fisheries 
Lake Tanganyika - once one of the richest freshwater ecosystems in the world and home to more than 2,000 plant and animal species.
Nearly five million people living in the greater Lake Tanganyika watershed face extreme poverty, disease, and the effects of environmental degradation associated with unregulated development.  Shoreline communities depend on the lake for both sustenance and generating income.
The University of Kentucky project team will provide much needed high-resolution marine-type geophysical survey analysis to the community-based fisheries management agencies in developing a new conservation strategy.
