This thesis examined the legal regime on fishery in Uganda with specific case reference to the implementation of the Fish Regulation, an institutional structure for the co-management approach, in the Lake Albert fishing villages. This is done with specific interest in outcomes related to social equity among the Lake Albert members and the issues with the fisheries resource sustainability. The analysis is done using the sustainable livelihood approach and the institutional analysis frame work. The challenges involved in the implementation process are also highlighted and put into consideration in this analysis. At the same time, discussions in the analysis touch on issues of development knowledge production for the developing worlds with special regards to when such "knowledge’s" are turned into uniform policies. This discussion, with regard to knowledge production is to ascertain whether such knowledge production systems either heal or escalate the damaged situations in such regions when they are turned into policies.
