NB: Serious sampling of Lake Victoria only began in 1979, meaning that some species probably went extinct without ever being recorded. Moreover, given the size of Lake Victoria (Area: 68,800 km²) it is reasonable to suppose that many of the species listed here survived much longer than is recorded (or still exist). See (Harrison & Stiassny, 1999:291-293) for a detailed discussion of this and other points.
