Fisheries are important to Tanzania’s economy, providing income, export revenues, and about 4 million jobs (about 35% of rural employment). Fish are also important to nutrition, providing about 22% of animal protein in the diet. Tanzania primarily produces wild fish in Lake Victoria – the world’s second-largest freshwater lake – and along its coast. Yet, due in part to harmful fishing practices, the sector’s growth is declining. There is an urgent need for management strategies that increase the sustainable use and natural productivity of Tanzania’s fisheries.
