It means "I want mine". But looking at the context, it seems like the "mine" refers to samaki (fish), so I would have expected wangu. Cases are a weakness of mine; maybe changu is a general/sloppy way of saying "mine".

In Thailand now. Next up Tanzania and Philippines.

Leo, thanks, that's pretty much what I thought. But it doesn't seem to follow the line of the conversation, so I was unsure.
