KEMFRI Fishery Aquaculture

Aquaculture: Pathway to food security in Kenya...by Andrew Marriott and Odipo Osano


Tilapia, Kenya’s most popular freshwater fish, is an important part of the country’s diet. Once abundant in the fresh water of Lake Victoria, years of over-fishing mean that stocks of this rich and nutritious food source are now running low.

This shortage threatens the delicate balance of Lake Victoria’s ecosystem. It also means that many people no longer have access to a local, affordable source of protein that is vital for their nutrition and health. It is for this reason that Farm Africa is helping farmers like Florence to make a success of aquaculture, or fish farming as it’s more commonly known. It really is a great solution: not only does it help families improve their diets, it also generates income, creates employment and protects the precious natural resource that is Lake Victoria from further damage..

The Catholic Diocese of Kitui is the implementing partner of the grain amaranth technology. Whose aim is to  up scale the grain amaranth production and consumption in the semi-arid lands of Kitui County, eastern Kenya.  The project is taking place at Muthale, Mwingi, Mutomo and Kitui. The project targets s 25,000 farmers in the four implementing areas. The ultimate beneficiaries of this programme are the vulnerable groups in Kitui County.
