This film reports on some unintended consequences resulting from changes in fishing practices on Lake Victoria (Kenya, Uganda, Tanzania). Following investment from aid organizations and international development banks, a small scale local or regional fishery has become a commercial, export driven fishery providing Nile perch for the European, Japanese and American markets, and sardines for fishmeal. However, this has contributed to higher prices, food insecurity, overexploitation of fish stocks and loss of traditional management practices. Local fishermen have often been marginalised and women previously working in the fish processing industry left without employment in an area with few other income generating opportunities.
