    Since KCM has planted , fingerlings into the Kafue River and streams near its operations on the Copperbelt to help restore fish stocks in the water bodies, he said. The Kafue Basin, one of the most sensitive basins in Zambia, has been subjected to flooding. The year saw severe floods in the Kafue Flats when fishing camps and some settlements along the river were inundated and people were displaced.

      Over 36 fish species are on the verge of extinction in the Kafue Flats in Monze District of Southern province if the Lower Kafue Fisheries Management Plan meant to regulate fishing is not implemented soon. The Fisheries Department has since called .

    Zambia Wildlife Authority, Chilanga, Zambia. The Kafue Flats make up a 6, km 2 floodplain along the Kafue river that extends from Itezhitezhi for km downstream to the head of Kafue Gorge. Once considered the most important agricultural entity in Zambia (Bingham ) and – with its huge herds of lechwe antelope and vast flocks of. Rising water levels trigger fish production processes, as many fish species spawn and migrate laterally out of river channels onto the newly flooded floodplains when water levels rise [5,6]. In the floodplains, fish growth and recruitment rates generally increase as fish find protection from predators and abundant plant-based food resources.

A model is developed which describes the way in which the fish populations of African rivers and their fisheries are influenced by the different types of flood Regime. Ichthyomass and fish catch are dependent on both the extent of flooding during high water and the amount of water remaining in the system during the dry season.

The Kafue River is the longest river lying wholly within Zambia at about 1, kilometres ( mi) long. Its water is used for irrigation and for hydroelectric power. It is the largest tributary of the Zambezi, and of Zambia's principal rivers, it is the most central and the most than 50% of Zambia's population live in the Kafue River Basin and of these around 65% are urban.

Mr. Speedy Holden, co-founder and managing director of Kafue Fisheries. By seamlessly integrating an agroecosystem, Kafue Fisheries produces tons of fish per year and is a major supplier of livestock for breeding and slaughter.

“The need for sustainable farming has been recognised for many decades. What we have done here is to show how. The health and subsequent growth of fish are directly related to the quality of water in which the fish are raised.

In general, factors affecting fish growth and production in freshwater aquatic systems can be classified as physical, chemical/biochemical, or a combination thereof. The argument being advanced by the importers is that O. niloticus’ growth rate is superior to the indigenous fish species and there is need to reduce the fish deficit estimated at 87, metric tons due to sustainable fish catches from capture fisheries despite an annual increase in.

Sectioned otoliths were used for age and growth determination of Oreochromis macrochir, a common cichlid species from the Okavango Delta, Botswana.

The Okavango Delta is a vast inland wetland ecosystem which receives annual floodwaters from the highlands of southern Angola. Floodwaters reach the northern areas of the delta between January and March and the southern areas between June and.The Kafue River plays a large role in Zambia’s eco- system.

It is a major tributary to the Zambezi River and is the largest and longest river lying entirely within Zambia. Other tributaries include the Lufupa and Lunga rivers in the north, the Musa and the Luansanza in the centre and the Nanzhila in the south. The Kafue Flats are a large, flat floodplain of the Kafue River in Zambia.

Historically, after the onset of the rainy season in November, flood waters began to rise from a dry season low of about 30 m 3 s −1 and peaked in April or May at more than m 3 s −1. More than square kilometres were under water during typical flood stage.
