10 FACTORS THAT HAVE FAVOURED FISH FARMING IN UGANDA
  • Improvement in research on fisheries which provided the need to establish ponds where the studies are carried out like in Kajjansi-Wakiso.




  • Supportive government policy of financing fish farming which came up after realizing that the natural fishing grounds like L. Victoria are getting depleted.
  • Availability of ready fish market both local in urban areas of Jinja, Kampala, Masaka and foreign in Middle East countries which encouraged farmers to practice fish farming so as to earn a living.
  • The presence of cool temperature and reliable rain fall which support the existence of fish and fish growth like in Wakiso and Mukono.
  • Availability of various fish species to stock the ponds such as Tilapia, Bagrus and clarias.




  • Presence of skilled labour provided by graduates from Makerere University and semi-skilled labour by the locals in populated districts of Mukono, Buikwe, Kamuli, and Mpigi to facilitate the establishment and management of ponds.
  • Plenty of fish feeds produced locally by Uganda like maize brand and burnt bread, this support fish growth and multiplication.
