Since the proliferation of cage fish farming in Uganda has raised concern over water quality deterioration, a study of the effects of cage fish farming on water quality in the Napoleon Gulf, Northern Lake Victoria was conducted during October 2012 to February 2013. Selected water column physicochemical parameters and benthic macro-invertebrates’ community parameters (i.e. numerical abundance, Shannon-Weaver diversity Index and modified Hilsenhoff Biotic Index) were analyzed monthly at both cage… CONTINUE READING
