Another Rare “Mkunga” Fish Found on Lake Malawi (See Photos)

Just 9 months after a rare fish called Mkunga was discovered on Lake Malawi, another Mkunga fish has been found and pictures are making rounds on social media.

According to reports, the Mkunga fish which is also known as Mnjolo can measure up to 1.7 metres and weighs over 20kg`s if put on a scale.

The fish is among 700 rare species of fish that are found on Lake Malawi. Mkunga fish resembles exactly as a snake in a way that it can possibly be mistaken for a snake.

Sources say the name Mkunga is taken from Yao language.

Just like Bombe fish, Mkunga is said to be a delicious fish but can have side effects to people whose skin is allergic to some foods.

This comes in after another Mkunga fish was caught on the beautiful Lake Malawi just last year.

  1. My comment on the Mkunga and Munjorwa which are a tasty delicacy in some parts of Lakeshore areas in Malawi is also known as MUNKHUNGA, a long fish belonging to the mud fish family but is rarely caught in Lake Malawi. It has been and remains endemic to Lake Malawi. Some of us have lived seeing it being caught whilst we were young. In contrast, Mnjolo is also known as MUNJORWA in some parts of the lakeshore area. It belongs to mud fish family and feeds on its fellow fish. Munjorwa as is known is not naturally long the way Munkhunga is. Besides eating fellow fish, Munjorwa feeds on its fellow fish. Munjorwa also feeds on fig fruits which are gotten by climbing into fig trees especially those tree branches whose branches lie afew meters above the water surface. So Munjorwa is not the same as Munkhunga nor Munkhunga the same as Munjorwa. They seem to belong to the same genus of fish but follow or are in totally different species scientifically.
