A comprehensive Frame survey was carried out in lakes Kwania, Kyoga and the Kyoga basin minor lakes which include Lake Bisina in 2002 (Figure 1). The Frame survey was coordinated by the Department of Fisheries Resources (DFR) assisted by the National Fisheries Resources Research Institute (NAFIRRI) with technical support. The riparian districts through the sub-county fisheries offices and the BMUs provided the enumerators and supervisors. The frame survey captured all the important characteristics of the fisheries and facilities supporting the fisheries and thus provides a strong baseline for future reference of management interventions in the basin. There was inadequate provision for handling and analysis of the large data sets immediately after the Frame survey. However, in view of the importance of the information in these data, NAFIRRI sought to intervene through ARTP II funding and have the data input and analysed. Thus through ARTP II funding the raw data files were obtained from DFR, input and analysed. This report is one of the final stages of this process.
