Fishing canoes (dugout) in Uganda

This picture shows abandoned fishing canoes namely dugout canoes. Because of its small size, these canoes can move easy especially in unfavorable fishing zones  like the breeding sites where they can have high fish catchability especially of immature fish. The poverty and lack of funds within the fishing community compels fishermen to use the illegal gears due to the inability to afford the right ones.

Note: We decided not to watermark the photos in order not to upset its clarity. However, we trust you will notify us if you wish to use a picture or more. This is expected and will be appreciated.
