About Lake Chad and Lake Chad’s Sardine Fish

The freshwater sardine is a small silvery fish with a strong taste that is usually sun-dried and eaten whole. In Chad sardines are a very important part of Chadians diets because sardines are cheap and can be stored for a long time, rich in calcium, potassium, and magnesium which are very important for the development of teeth and bones in children and vital for pregnant mothers, and rich in vitamin A, D and of the B group vital for the health of all.

Almost nine times the size of New York State; slightly more than three times the size of California, in Chad the highest population concentration is found in the southwest, particularly around Lake Chad. Lake Chad, the most significant water body in the Sahel, is a remnant of a former inland sea, paleolake Mega-Chad; at its greatest extent, sometime before 5000 B.C., Lake Mega-Chad was the largest of four Saharan paleolakes that existed during the African Humid Period; it covered an area of about 400,000 sq km (150,000 sq mi), roughly the size of today's Caspian Sea.

The shrinking of Lake Chad, which is bordered by four African countries; Cameroon, Niger, Nigeria, and Chad, is an environmental disaster. Lake Chad has shrunk by 90% since the 1960s, due to climate change, an increase in the population and unplanned irrigation. Its basin covers parts of Nigeria, Niger, Chad, and Cameroon, and has been a water source for between 20 million and 30 million people. At the current rate of recession of the water body, Lake Chad could disappear for about twenty years.

Lake Chad is a lake in Africa located at the boundaries of Cameroon, Chad, Niger, and Nigeria.
