Range DescriptionThis subspecies is known from the Democratic Republic of Congo to Namibia and Botswana.
Central Africa: Serranochromis robustus jallae is known from the Luapula-Mweru system, from the Lualaba and from the Kasai.
Southern Africa: It is found in the upper Zambezi, Okavango, Kafue and Zambian Congo systems. Its native range in Zimbabwe is the Zambezi River above Victoria Falls although two specimens were taken in Lake Kariba in 1968 (Balon 1974) and some were stocked in 1975 (Kenmuir 1983). It has been widely translocated by anglers in Zimbabwe and could be expected in almost any river or impoundments on the central plateau.
