The fisheries industry has been on a steady decline, following the indefinite closure of more than 10 fish processing plants in the country. Poor governance and neglect on conservation efforts have almost halved the country’s fish production, raising serious questions on the sustainability of fishing as an economic activity and preservation of Lake Victoria as a mutual resource shared between Kenya, Tanzania and Uganda. Our reporter Vitalis Nyagoll gives us an in depth perspective into the issues bedeviling the fishing industry.

T/I: 11:17:56 Hundreds of thousands of tons of weed are threatening environmental havoc in Africa's greatest lake. Six years ago researchers spotted the first water hyacinth in Lake Victoria. Since then the large fibrous plant, which floats in mats across the water, has expanded at an extraordinary rate, drawing the life from the lake and threatening to block ports, dams, bays and even the River Nile.
