Shoko, A.P.A. and Ngowo, R.R. and Waya, R.K. (2005) Deleterious effects of non-native species introduced into Lake Victoria, East Africa. Naga, Worldfish Center Quarterly, 28(3-4), pp. 27-32.
Lake Victoria, in East Africa, has suffered from introductions and invasions of non-native species such as Lates niloticus, various tilapiine species, and Eichornia crassipes since the 1950s. These have had a devastating effect on the natural biological communities. This paper reviews the effects of the introductions on ecology, environment, fisheries and the local human population.
