The Food and Agriculture Organisation (FAO) has introduced new fishing technology to Uganda called Catamaran. The Catamaran technology, according to a press statement issued by FAO, involves two boats tied together like a single hull and powered by a single engine.
The fishing gear is a lift net with an opening of eight square metres and with a depth of eight meters and a bag in which the silver fish collects. Four pressure lamps are used and a crew of four people hauls the net. This
