  • The importance of Lal<e Victoria wetlands for the Nile tilap'a was studied. Five wetland types were defined: papyrus, reed, bulrush, hippo grass, water hyacinth. Hydrology, vegetation and distance towards open water explained the variation in abiotic and biotic factors. Over 30 fish species were identified. The Nile tilapia contributed 45-65% ofthe biomasn. Seasonality explained size-related abundance patterns. Most of the species biomass was associated with reed-hippo grassbulrush wetlands… CONTINUE READING
