On Monday fishermen at Makungulu Beach in Kachere Village on Likoma Island were excited when John Malamula assisted by his colleague Jacob Mwakawila caught a rare type of fish locally known as Mkunga or Mnjolo (Anguilla bicolor) using a line and hook.

The 1.7 metre fish weighing 20 kilogrammes is a deep-water fish.

It was last caught in 2007, according to communities in the area.

Lake Malawi is said to be home to more fish species than any other lake in the world.

It is home to at least 700 species of cichlids among other types.

But despite the many types of fish, over the years, some have become almost extinct in that one hardly catches them.

    An exciting catch! One correction: the scientific name of this eel is Anguilla bengalensis, not Anguilla bicolor.
