The Greeks of Malawi

The Greeks of Malawi

The 1930s marked a transformation in the organisation of commercial fishing on Lake Malawi since fishermen from Greece had begun to have a strong effect on the lake fisheries . In 1934, Nicholas Yiannakis and his brothers Christos and Stavros started fishing commercially at Chipoka, some twelve miles from Fort Johnston. From their base in the area between Mangochi boma and Monkey Bay, they dominated the fish industry in Malawi.
