After harvesting the fish, the ponds will be cleaned and then restock it with young fish. The business is innovative in that it has both environmental and economic benefits. The fish ponds will help conserve fish and other microscopic aquatic plants and animals and the fish raised will generate income to the youth group. The initial cost of digging up the ponds is high but after the ponds have been dug, the operation costs become very small and the profits are high. The ponds can be used for many years. The natural resource for fish farming is a permanent water source which we have and the fish consumed in our area is got from Lake Victoria which is a distance of 200km a way and this makes fish in our area to be very expense and in addition to that, the number of fish in lakes in Uganda is reducing.
