    I’m currently doing my doctoral studies in department of environment, Makerere University. My thesis is titled “Indigenous knowledge, conservation and co-management of fisheries resources in Uganda. A case of small-scale fishing communities (Wakiso and Kalangala districts)” I look forward to working closely with researchers in the domain of artisanal fisheries.

  5. Chris Barry says:

    I am the chair of the Society of Naval Architects and Marine Engineers. SNAME has long been involved with various small craft and fishing systems, as well as various aspects of historic and artisanal small craft (a panel on such small craft, including a presentation on a traditional artisanal fishing boat type was held at the last annual meeting) and some of our members may be useful to you.

    I also assume you are familiar with the old FAO material on such fisheries.

    Please feel free to contact me if I can help.
