Yesterday Yvonne Vadeboncoeur's crew was on the lake before dawn and returned to the lab after sunset. Pete's crew had to do emergency repairs on their boat before getting on the lake to gather samples of fish with George Kazumbe. George is recognized as an expert of Lake Tanganyika fishes. He is an excellant scuba diving guide, and runs Maji Makumbwa (Big Water), an Eco-tourism business in Kigoma (PKazumbe@gmail.com, firstname.lastname@example.org, +255 755 662129). While we have been here, scientists from Princeton, Oklahoma State, University of Arizona as well as Wright State and University of Wisconsin, and others from Europe have passed through to consult with George.
