Abstract: On the basis of observations, it is recommended that 127 mm should be the minimum mesh size of gillnet permitted on Lakes Victoria and Kyoga. The minimum length of Nile tilapia (Oreochromis niloticus) should remain at 28 cm but that of Nile perch (Lates niloticus) should be increased from 46 cm to 50 cm. The minimum mesh size limit of seine net for Mukene on Lake Victoria should be 10 mm and fishing for Mukene should be done using lampara net operated offshore.
