Climate change decreases aquatic ecosystem productivity of Lake Tanganyika, Africa.Full Text Available By: O’ReiIIy, Catherine M.; AIinl, Simone R.; Plisnier, Pierre-Denis; Cohen, Andrew S.; McKee, Brent A.. Nature, 8/14/2003, Vol. 424 Issue 6950, p766, 3p; DOI: 10.1038/nature01833;
There have been numerous peer reviewed articles that have talked about an increase of fish, including the one above. The only species of Cichlids that are declining are the rock fish that are suffering from their habitation being destroyed by erosion of rock shelve strata by over use of the area.
Nature and Science are the only two journals that have any articles about global warming causing issues and they’ve been by the same authors, using similar test methods to this recent one. The latter not using any surface temperatures across the lake or more than two core samples. This lake is over 10,000 sq. miles.
That is like going to Alaska and turning a hair dryer on a patch of ice and taking only measurements of that patch and saying Alaska is suffering from an incredible heat wave.
After reading about 5 different peer reviewed articles. I see a trend Information from Nature and Science pretty much always push an AGW them onto Lake Tanganyka and other articles talk about the Chiclids thriving in certain areas and that high winds are changing surface temperatures in a cyclic nature during different periods of the 4 seasons.

the only thing anthropogenic that I can see is greedy African oil companies and massive overharvesting of fish populations.
