Fingerponds: Managing Nutrients & Primary Productivity For Enhanced Fish Production in Lake Victoria’s Wetlands Uganda

0
This study examines fingerponds in the Lake Victoria wetlands in Uganda. It discusses the importance of organic manure applications in enhancing nutrient levels, phytoplankton, and periphyton productivities and ultimately fish production. The study demonstrates that organic manures enhance algal development and fish production, emphasizing that close monitoring and control are needed. It explores the enhancement of fish yields using animal manure, fermented green manure, and artificial substrates for periphyton development, covers the good management practices required to regulate pond inputs and conditions, and discusses the role of fingerponds in ameliorating food security for resource-poor communities.
