Traditional fishing methods of Africa as an example of indigenous knowledge systems
An extraordinary variety of traditional methods for catching marine and freshwater fishes and shellfishes that has been developed in Africa will be discussed and their role in the sustainable use of valuable aquatic resources will be emphasized. It will further be argued that traditional fishing methods should be conserved, just as living aquatic resources are conserved, so that these traditional practises do not go ‘extinct’ and will continue to be used to harvest aquatic resources in relatively sustainable ways. The main threats to traditional fishing methods will also be discussed.
