WELCOME TO TANZANIA FISHERIES RESEARCH INSTITUTE'S WEBSITE
Tanzania Fisheries Research Institute (TAFIRI) was established by
the Act of Parliament No. 6 of 1980 to promote, conduct, and co-
ordinate fisheries research in Tanzania. TAFIRI headquarters is in
Dar es Salaam.
Currently, the institute is comprised of four
Research Centres: Mwanza Station along the Lake Victoria,
Kigoma Station along the Lake Tanganyika, Kyela Station along
the Lake Nyassa/Malawi, and Dar es Salaam Station along the
Indian Ocean. In addition, there is also one sub-station along the
Lake Victoria under Mwanza Station located at Shirati.
Apart from the three major lakes and the Indian Ocean, TAFIRI’s scope of
research also includes all small water bodies in the country such as
satellite lakes, ponds, dams and rivers. Currently TAFIRI receives
subvention from the government and development partners for
undertaking research and consultancy.
