As to the prospects of tourism, it's perhaps necessary to keep in mind the slightly larger fauna in addition to the worms:



Gustave (it is said) spends most of his time in a river that empties into the lake. The lake itself doesn't have much to attract him.

There are crocodiles in the lake, but they're small. The real danger is from hippos, which are foul-tempered, huge, and will readily attack and kill human swimmers.

Fortunately (I was told) they come by at regular hours, twice per day going to and from their feeding areas; everybody knows when, and the hotel lifeguards chase people out of the water then.
