Lake Naivasha is at the highest elevation of the Kenyan Rift valley at 1,884 metres (6,181 ft) in a complex geological combination of volcanic rocks and sedimentary deposits from a larger Pleistocene era lake. Apart from transient streams, the lake is fed by the perennial Malewa and Gilgil rivers. There is no visible outlet, but since the lake water is relatively fresh it is assumed to have an underground outflow
Fishery on Lake Naivasha
Lake Naivasha is a freshwater lake situated in the eastern rift valley of Kenya. Only five species of fish are present, all of which have been introduced. They are Oreochromis leucostictus, Tilapia zillii, Micropterus salmoides (largemouth bass), Barbus amphigramma and Poecilia reticulata (guppy). The first three of these form the basis of an important gill net fishery and bass are also taken by rod and line for sport. Barbus are occasionally caught by dip net. Actual and potential yields for the Lake Naivasha fishery are discussed and the fishery is shown to be under-performing. The feeding regimes of the commercially exploited fish were examined in the context of available food supply, in particular the benthic fauna. Small bass depend heavily on Micronecta and large bass mostly take crayfish.
