Preparation of this document:-
This document is based on a report prepared as part of the project "Improved Fisheries Productivity and Management in Tropical Reservoirs" funded by the CGIAR Challenge program on Water and food (www.waterandfood.org) and managed by the World Fish Center. The project benefited from an international collaboration between the Central Inland Fisheries Research Institute (India), the Lake Nasser Development Authority (Egypt), the University of Bergen (Norway), the Water Research Institute (Ghana) and the World Fish Center.
The present document draws upon three individual desk-based reviews that cover the Indo-Gangetic Basin reservoirs, Lake Nasser and Lake Volta. These individual reviews were prepared by the Partners of the project, with major contributions from E.K. Abban, H.Adam, K. Agboga, H.R. Dankwa, O. Habib, P.Katiha, I. Omar, M. Sherata, H.A.R. Soliman, K.K. Vass and M. Zaki
The final document was peer reviewed by Dr Robin L. Welcomme, who provided valuable suggestions and advice.
