    Hi,

    One of my colleagues, went on a 4 week tour of Africa in December on his motorcycle and made a stop at Senga bay, Lake Malawi and took some photos of the lake and the local fish farm, see photos below (with his permission I uploaded the photos):

    Great pics!
    I am fortunate enough to have been there a few times in the early nineties. I met Stewart Grant, who me took on on the grand tour of his Kambiri Point fish farm/ holding facility.
    After the tour he introduced me to somebody who just came back from a diving expedition to film new-to-science species - Ad Konings!
    I also spent time with Saulos Mwale, head diver. Saulos had two species of Lake Malawi cichlids named after him at that time, Pseudotropheus saulosi and Aulonocara saulosi.
    Needless to say, I had the time of my life!

    @OscaCT - Did your friend break into the fish farm? :laugh: (Looks like he is running through the factory with the glass tanks)
