Title
Traditional Fish Smoking in Western Kenya

Abstract
Although the smoking of Nile perch around the shores of Lake Victoria is often referred to as a form of 'traditional' fish preservation, it has, in fact, only been practiced for about 20 years. Nile perch was introduced into Lake Victoria in the late 1950's and has only become an abundant species over the past two decades. Smoking of some of the much smaller indigenous species was indeed a 'traditional' activity. For example, mud fish were smoked in pits and apparently considered a great delicacy, but smoking of these species has almost died out now although it is still practiced in a few areas.
