Uganda - Fishing
Many persons find employment in fishing and the marketing of fish, and many fishermen sell their catch to the main distribution centers. Most fish are caught from dugouts or hand-propelled canoes. Lake Victoria and Lake Kyoga are the major commercial fishing areas; Nile perch and Nile tilapia are the most abundant species. In 2000, the total catch was estimated at 355,831 tons. The fishing industry has benefited from a large ice-making plant at Soroti.
