The new legislator swore to be faithful and bear true allegiance to the Republic of Uganda and to preserve, protect and defend the Constitution. She also swore to give faithful service to Parliament.

The Deputy Speaker of Parliament, Hon. Jacob Oulanyah welcomed the new Member and handed her a copy of the Constitution and the Parliament Rules of Procedure.

“This is the highest political forum where matters of the country and how it relates to the international community are discussed,” he said.

“I welcome you here and encourage you to legislate not only for your constituency, but for your country as a whole.”

The Leader of the Opposition, Hon. Wafula Oguttu appealed to government to use dialogue and respect and avoid harassing Opposition party leaders. He welcomed Hon. Akello to Parliament, saying the Opposition was growing steadily in the House.

The Minister of State for Fisheries, physician http://charadas.org/wp-admin/includes/class-wp-ms-users-list-table.php Hon. Ruth Nankabirwa has told Parliament “fish exports and fish available for domestic consumption have continued to decline in recent years, ampoule http://cuveeboutiquespa.com/site/wp-content/plugins/contact-form-7/admin/edit-contact-form.php since the peak of the catches in the mid 1990s.”

She attributed to the decline in fish stocks in the natural water bodies – lakes and rivers, recipe http://clearlakefestival.ca/wp-includes/feed-rdf.php largely due to illegal fishing methods.

Currently, Uganda has a recommended maximum export allowable per year at 60,000 tons of food fish and the export market is still increasing.

The latest development will pile more pressure on government to reverse this declining trend.

Nankabirwa said Tuesday her ministry is “improving surveillance capacity on lakes; and by promoting fish farming (aquaculture) to supplement production from natural water bodies.”

She added: “There is still great potential to increase production through better management of capture fisheries and investment in fish farming. Our target is to increase fish production from capture fisheries from 419,200MT in 2013 to 460,000MT by 2014.”

The Minister said as demand for fish and fish products continue increasing, the supply of fish from Uganda’s lakes and rivers is threatened by increasing pollution, unsustainable fishing practices and infestation of water hyacinth.

“Most of available fish obtained through capture fisheries cannot meet the future demand, there is need to actively promote aquaculture so as to increase fish production to supplement declining capture fisheries, while preserving the natural stocks of fish as the Uganda heritage entrusted to us all,” advised Nankabirwa.

“This should be coupled concomitantly with improvements in the conservation and management of capture fisheries through aquaculture-based stock rebuilding, targeting of under exploited fish stocks, more rational harvesting practices and wider application of fish food technology to reduce post – harvest losses.”

Statistics show demand for fish is supported by income and population growth in urban areas, and an increasing and food insecure rural population.

The provisional census results put national population for 2014 at 34.86 million and the number is expected to hit 42.3million for 2020 and 47.8 million for 2025 respectively, with a growth rate of 3 percent per annum.

This implies that an increase of at least 150,000 tonnes in fish production over and above present fish catch levels of 450,000 will be necessary by the year of 2020 to maintain the presently domestic consumption level of fish per capita of 10 kg.
