As the sun kisses lake Victoria, the fishermen are just ready to go catch silver fish. It is the fish about 2inches in size but a highly valuable source of protein. The logic behind catching it is rather simple; as the darkness gathers, fishermen put anchored lights to float on the water and leave it in the dark. it is within the darkness that the fish follows the only source of light. When they appear in large numbers, the net is brought and put around the light in such a way that little or none escape.

The spur-winged lapwing (Vanellus spinosus) is one of the fun birds you can see at Ngamba island. These birds are medium-sized wading birds and often seen around the edges of lakes and waterways, though will sometimes venture out into the plains also. In the past, the spur-winged lapwing was claimed to be involved in a a cleaning symbiosis with the Nile crocodile: the crocodiles would open their mouths for the birds to clean around the teeth and gums — though this has never been confirmed!
