Welcome to the webpage of our newly funded project CHIPOLATA – Climate change and harvesting impacts on the pelagic fish community of Lake Tanganyika!

Over the next four years (2024-2027), we will work with local scientists to study how populations of the three main fisheries target species of Lake Tanganyika have evolved over the last 30 years to better understand their resilience to climate change and harvesting.

CHIPOLATA is funded by the Research Council of Norway (project 343414), and represents a collaboration between Nord University, University of Zambia (Lusaka, Zambia), Centre de Recherche en Hydrobiology (Uvira, DR Congo) and University of Wyoming (USA).

Two PhD fellowships and one postdoctoral fellowship that are associated with the project are available here.
