Conduct a fish survey in the Chimanimani National Reserve to list the species occurring in the area, update the status of the known species with gathered data, describe new species (e.g., Enteromius sp.nov. ‘Chimanimani’) and ultimately, enable a better management of these species in the reserve by disseminating the project results among local stakeholders and the scientific community (e.g., booklets).

Strategic Direction: 1 Mainstream biodiversity into wider development policies, plans and projects to deliver the co-benefits of biodiversity conservation, improved local livelihoods and economic development in priority corridors.
