Fishermen Cast a Weighted Net from a Wooden Boat. Lake Victoria, Uganda

Fact: 

"Canoes were made by felling large trees, letting them sit for three months or so until they were dry, and the burning the insides out of them. This process had to be carefully watched.  Earliest people used dugout canoes. Native men would make a canoe from one tree using no metal edged tools. After felling a great tree, they hollowed it by putting rosin on one side and setting fire to it. The tree was burned in small sections and the resulting coal scraped out with shells. A large canoe could glide quietly along with twenty men"

A Fisherman Casts his Weighted Net whilst another Fisherman Readies his Fishing Net for Casting

Fact

"A cast net is a net used for fishing. It is a circular with small weights sewn around its edge.

The net is cast by hand in so that it spreads out on the water and sinks. This technique is called net casting. Fish are caught as the net is pulled back to the boat. This cast net is perfect for catching small bait fish, and has been in use, with various designs for thousands of years"

A Fisherman speaks on his Mobile Phone on a Wooden Boat in the middle of Lake Victoria

Fact

"The introduction of Nile perch into lake Victoria is the worst single environmental disaster in human history: over 300 species of fish were driven extinct by the newly introduced predator.

And while the perch generated jobs and revenue, it also generated famine: as nile perch fillet could be sold to europe, it was too expensive for the local population (who previously had subsisted on the smaller species of fish driven extinct by the nile perch).Now that the fishermen have, through overfishing, managed to crash the stock of nile perch, some of the native species of the lake which were teetering on the edge of extinction, are actually making a comeback" Jesusaurus Rex
