潜水湖马拉维

湖泊马拉维湖潜水潜水,含有Aquarises最喜欢的淡水坦克鱼。许多人喜欢精美的色彩CICHLIDS., but few dive this beautiful lake in South Eastern Africa. Apart from its aquarium fish, Lake Malawi is also a biologically important lake containing the most number of species in any one lake.

超过1000种居住湖泊,它含有所有已知的碱性物种的30%。最重要的是,几乎所有的慈鲷物种都是马拉维湖流行的,这意味着它是世界上唯一找到它们的地方。湖泊的隔离导致了含碱物种的自适应辐射和形态。

The ninth largest lake in the world and the third largest in Africa, Lake Malawi stretches 365 miles across and is 52 miles wide. It sits between the countries of Malawi, Mozambique, and Tanzania. David Livingstone came across the lake in 1856 during his Africa exploration. When he asked the local people what its name was, they told him “Nyasa”, which he later found out meant “lake” in the local language.

潜水湖马拉维has been on my bucket list for quite some time, probably due to hearing about the impressive rates of evolution during biology classes or seeing some of the beautifully colored cichlid fish in aquariums. So after about 30 hours of flying and a six-hour car ride, I ended up on the shores of northern Lake Malawi at Kande Beach.

一个美丽的白色沙滩和浅蓝色水,与天空融合在迎接我。距离海上大米,大约半英里,是一个摇滚岛也叫Kande,这是该地区的受欢迎的潜水网站。新金沙线上CICHLIDS住在岩石周围 - 有时称为摇滚鱼 - 那里有岩石,往往有慈鲷。

Having recovered from my journey, the next day was time to dive. We headed out to the island for my first lake dive in Africa and my first high altitude lake dive (Lake Malawi is at 1640ft above sea level).

While gearing up, thedive mastertold me I probably wouldn’t need any weight because the lake is all fresh water and we were using steel tanks. Unconvinced, and just to be safe, I brought two pounds anyway. Turned out I was overweight even with no weights! I had never been on a dive with no weights before.

马拉维湖

Kande Island是一个受欢迎的潜水网站,最新金沙线上大的40英尺深,潜水员可以在一个潜水中一直在岛上游泳。不同尺寸的大巨石似乎已经彼此堆叠,营造了几个狭窄的游泳,觉得自己穿过狭窄的峡谷。沿着这些巨石都是马拉维的鱼湖是着名的 - CICHLIDS。

Lake diving, compared to ocean diving, can be a bit drab. No colorful corals or sponges, just a lot of rocks and sand. But for what the lake doesn’t offer in sessile marine life, it offers in beautifully colored fish. Opalescent and midnight blues, lavenders, yellows, and more, the fish speckle the lake with color. Most of the cichlids are small fish, only 2-4 inches, but some of them get up to 3-4 feet!

As divers, we often use the expression that we’re diving in a big aquarium, but never had that felt more true to me. Diving Lake Malawi was like diving the aquarium of my childhood – freshwater. With a sandy and pebbly bottom, a fake sunken boat, and a treasure chest that’s lid-open with bubbles.

好的,没有宝箱。但是有几艘沉没的船只,传统的马拉维渔夫挖掘独木舟,一个小木船和沉没的吉普车。当你用野生动物园潜水时,你知道你在非洲!

在另一个潜水上,我们前新金沙线上往约翰的礁石,一个越来越多的90英尺,距离岛屿只有半英里。当我们走向底部时,我看到了与之前潜水相同的形状的鱼,但它们是完全不同的颜色!新金沙线上

在较深的水域中,浅水中看到的鱼类没看见,我以前没有看到大部分这些鱼。在湖中有这么多种物种,每个物种都患有非常特殊的栖息地。只是康德地区有几种在湖中发现的一些地方鱼。

Sadly both the beautiful lake and its unique fish are threatened. Over-fishing is a major issue as most of the country of Malawi depends on the fish as their most important source of protein. As the population grows, the prospects of deforestation, increased farming and run-off threaten to pollute the lake.

水族馆贸易也有助于丧生鱼,尽管幸运的是许多用于水族馆的CICHLIDS NETINE在囚禁中都是品种的。其他问题包括在湖中引入新物种以及石油勘探。

Diving in Lake Malawi and seeing all the colorful fish was a very unique experience. The calm and warm waters make for easy dives with lots to see. If you happen to find yourself in Malawi, I highly recommend a few dives to check out these distinctive fish.
