Abstract:The present study, a limnological analysis of Lake Mweru based on a survey conducted from April 1993 to April 1994, was carried out by the Department of Ficheries in Nchelenge, Zambia. Data are presented on rain and wind; water level; current, depth profile and bottom composition; temperature; oxygen; conductivity; alkalinity; transparency; chlorophyll a; dry and ash weight analyses; 24-hour measurement; light and dark bottle method; and chemical analyses. The author concludes that the Lake Mweru ecosystem is fragile. The use of destructive fishing methods should be avoided.
