Abstract: Nile perch was introduced in Lake Victoria in the 1950s and exploded in number during the 1980s. The process of colonization of the lake by this predatory fish is described and explained. The changes in a number of other fauna elements of Lake Victoria are described and explained. Not only Nile perch is to blame for these changes. Human influence by introducing other fish species, fisheries and agricultural practices have their impact
