Abstract or Summary
  • While the focus of Lake Victoria Nile-perch fishery is to serve the global market and tilapia is mainly for domestic market in Tanzania; Dagaa has a great potential for small scale trade in regional markets. In 2006 a survey was conducted to assess the regional fish marketing channel for the major commercial fish species in Lake Victoria. It was revealed that Dagaa accounts significantly in terms of volume traded in regional markets compared to Nile perch fish products. However, the latter fetches higher royalty. The present paper discusses the potential of Dagaa in regional fish trade, distribution system of Dagaa and other fish products in regional markets, and challenges faced by small-scale traders in regional fish trade and make recommendations on how to address the challenges.
