As of December 1, 2019, the Zambian Government has banned fishing activities in all water bodies across Zambia except Lake Kariba and Lake Tanganyika.
The Ban will be lifted on February 29, 2020.
Furthermore, the Minister of Livestock and Fisheries, Nkandu Luo has also indicated that the Government would on January 1, 2020 also effect a ban on Lake Kariba and Tanganyika after a Statutory Instrument (SI) to that effect has been put in place.
The Minister says her Ministry Team will embark on sporadic inspections on all checkpoints and water bodies to ensure that no one abrogates the LAW.
We urge all our members to take note of the ban and comply accordingly.
President, ZSFA Executive Committee, 2019
