Abstract
Recent research has shown that, on Lake Victoria, the current commercial fishing practice of using (stretched) mesh nylon gill nets, to exploit the Tilapia populations, has led to economic and possibly biological over-fishing of the inshore stocks. A greater yield could be obtained by using 5-in. nets, which would at the same time preserve the biomass of the standing crop and reduce the risk of biological over fishing.
