Fishing in Lake Chapala

Fishing in Lake Chapala

Several species of Chirostoma continue to dominate the fish community, but the harvest of marketable white fish has significantly diminished, from nearly 600 t in 1981 to less than 100 t in recent years. The introduced carp and tilapia are abundant. Carp through their foraging may contribute to sediment re-suspension. It is believed widely that the decline in fish catch is due to either overfishing and/or increased pollution. Alternatively, because the lake is now more light-limited because of re- suspensions of sediments, the fishery decline may be due to a decrease in phytoplankton production at the base of the food chain.
