Abstract: A survey of multigear fishery of Nile perch (Lates niloticus) in the Winam Gulf of Lake Victoria indicates that total mortality coefficient (Z) determined from longline fishery using hook number 6 was double that of hook number 7. Total mortality coefficient determined from gillnets and beachseines were lower than those of hooks. The catch per unit effort (C/f) measured using different criteria indicated an increase for all gears in 1990 as compared to 1989 except for gillnets. A two-fold increase in unit effort (f) increased the C/f for mosquito seines by only 30%. The typical exponential decay of C/f with increasing f of exploited stock in equilibrium was lacking in the case of Nile perch in the Winam Gulf.
