At the fishing village of Kyehoro, the locals catch tiny carpenter fish for food for themselves, and to sell as animal feed. Here, a woman spreads fish on a dirt road to dry in the sun, and adds dirt to give the fish more weight when she sells them. This is the smallest fish (and last fish species) they can strain from Lake Albert; people turned to it after Nile perch populations dwindled due to overfishing.
