Tanganyika, a tale of fish and men – full documentary with en/fr subtitles

Documentary
ENGLISH
Lake Tanganyika is the fish-richest lake in the world, and the second largest one in volume. Its unique ecosystem has been forged by over 10 million years of evolution, but is nowadays threatened by overfishing and habitat destruction. Fish stocks are declining. More than an ecological crisis, the disappearance of this unique resource is likely to bring about the collapse of the fragile human equilibriums that have developed around lake Tanganyika. Scientists from the northern hemisphere, African industrialists and local populations cohabit on the banks of the lake. Each of them maintains a special relation with lake Tanganyika and the halieutic resources that it is home to. Although they come from contrasted cultural and social backgrounds, each of them is affected by the scarcity of the fish. Through their different perspectives on lake Tanganyika and their perception on the decline of the fish stocks, the movie traces the triggering factors of this ecological and human crisis. The sustainable managing of Tanganyika appears to be as much about the scientific approach of its resources as it is about understanding the populations that rely on it.

FRANCAIS

Le lac Tanganyika est le lac le plus poissonneux du monde et le deuxième plus grand en volume. Son écosystème unique, forgé par dix millions d’années d’évolution, est depuis peu en proie au danger de la surexploitation: le poisson se fait rare. Plus qu’une crise écologique, la disparition de cette ressource unique au monde précipiterait l’effondrement des équilibres humains qui se sont tissés autour du Tanganyika.
Scientifiques occidentaux, industriels africains et populations locales cohabitent sur les berges, entretenant un rapport particulier au Tanganyika et aux richesses halieutiques qu’il recèle. Bien que provenant d’horizons contrastés, chacun est concerné à sa manière par la raréfaction du poisson. Au travers de leurs regards croisés sur le lac Tanganyika et de leur perception du déclin des stocks, le film retrace les facteurs déclencheurs de cette crise écologique et humaine. La gestion durable du Tanganyika relève autant de la compréhension scientifique de ses ressources que de l’écoute des populations qui en dépendent.
