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.
Fish have long been one of the leading export products for Uganda, but the country's stocks are declining due to overfishing. Researchers in the country are now adopting new technologies to encourage locals to practice responsible ways of fishing. It's hoped the new initiatives will boost exports and reduce pressure on Uganda's freshwater lakes.
The increasing demand of fish for both the local and export market is attracting more Ugandans into the fish farming business. This follows the threat to the fishing industry posed by reducing stocks mainly attributed to population pressure and poor fishing methods on the country's lakes and rivers.

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. The plant was originally imported to the region by Belgian colonists. SHOWS: UGANDA.
