Abstract
Mass mortality of Late.1 sp. is a relatively frequent and well-known phenomenon on Lake Albert and has been commented on by Greenwood (1958) and Worthington (1929).This communication records an observation of such a mortality made in 1969. Two Species of Lates inhabit Lake Albert, macrophthalmllsand niloticus (Holden, 1967), but it was not established which of these, or whether both were involved in the incident here recorded.
