The Fish Farm started off as a pilot with two ponds and has been expanded to include one more with more on the way. Fish farming in Uganda is a growing business and a very promising revenue stream for AROAD. The fish farms are located about 17 miles from Hope Primary School and 24 miles away from Kasensero (a fishing town on the shores of Lake Victoria). Fish farming is emerging as an increasingly valuable industry since Lake Victoria has been overfished and the government has increased the number of restricted fishing zones on Lake Victoria. AROAD is still looking to increase the number of fish ponds along with the total output of marketable fish.
