Bad nets

Many fish illegally, ignoring rules on fishing methods by using the wrong type of net or too small a mesh size, and confident that authorities will not apprehend or punish them. Fish stocks - especially of the highest value Nile Perch - are in decline as large numbers of immature fish are removed from the lake.
