Fishing Temporarily Banned at Lake Nasser to Save Wildlife

A temporary ban on fishing has been put in place at Aswan's Lake Nasser to help repopulate its ecosystem.

Fishing in Aswan's Lake Nasser - one of the world's largest artificial lakes - has been suspended for 45 days to restore the population of native fish. Inspections will be made throughout the ban period, and Aswan has announced plans to more strictly regulate overfishing after the period is over.

The Supreme Committee for the Development of Fisheries, who is partly responsible for this temporary ban, aims to increase fish production to 30,000 tonnes a year between 2022 and 2027.
