Darwin’s Nightmare

Sometime in 1960, in the heart of Africa, a new animal was introduced into Lake Victoria as a small scientific experiment.

The Nile Perch, a voracious predator, extinguished almost the entire native fish species. However, the new fish multiplied so fast that its white fillets are today exported all over the world.

Huge former Soviet cargo planes come daily to collect the latest catch in exchange for their cargo to the south … Kalashnikovs and ammunition for countless wars in the dark center of the continent.

This booming multinational industry of fish and weapons has created an unholy alliance of the largest banks globalized world tropical lake: an army of local fishermen, World Bank agents, homeless children, African ministers, EU commissioners, prostitutes Tanzania and Russian pilots.
