Thamalakane fish harvest

An early morning walk along the banks of the Thamalakane River at Matalapana in Maun on Sunday found local people busy harvesting fish brought close to the surface by the drying of the river. Plastic buckets and bags, home-made spears, sticks, nets and traditional fishing baskets were being used to capture bream, pike and barbel, and children were breakfasting on freshly cooked fish over an open fire. In HOORC’s Library, you can find Artisanal fishing and food security in the Okavango Delta, Botswana by HOORC researchers K. Mosepele and B.N. Ngwenya and Ted Bernard.
