Trawl surveys to assess the stocks of Lake Victoria for estimates of biomass and yield, together with the establishment of exploitation patterns, are being undertaken under the Lake victoria Fisheries Research Project. Preliminary surveys to establish the sampling stations and strategy were carried out between October 1997 and February 1998.
