The findings revealed 98.4% of the respondents were aware of but lacked knowledge on mode of transmission and prevention of HIV/AIDS, while 41.7% of the respondents said they will avoid contact with people living with HIV/AIDS This imply that there may be high level of stigmatization if a relation or member of the community was found living with the virus. 28.9% of respondents’ rate access to HIV/AIDS information as high in these fishing communities.
