Fishing is one of the most ancient forms of hunting and has spawned an astonishing variety of innovative methods and equipment used to outwit and catch aquatic animals. These ancient technologies, developed and used over a period of 10 000 years, are still in use in rural Africa today to harvest aquatic resources in a sustainable way. This has ignited interest in their potential to encourage the sustainable use of fish stocks. Brilliantly illustrated and clearly written, this book serves as a perfect introduction to a fascinating topic that will enhance your appreciation of indigenous knowledge systems in Africa.
