Investing in aquaculture

Stimulating the Blue Economy

KENYA: During a four-day tour, president of Kenya, William Ruto said that the government would be escalating investments in aquaculture in the Nyanza Region to stimulate the economy.

President William Ruto Friday began his four-day development tour of the region by inaugurating Kabonyo Fisheries Aquaculture Service and Training Centre of Excellence in Kabonyo, Kisumu County.

The facility will be used to produce up to 10 million fingerlings annually, which will be instrumental in restocking Lake Victoria.

The President said the project will not only broaden employment opportunities but also bolster food security and nutrition.

“Fishery is an integral pillar in the production of food in the country,” he said. He added that the Government is constructing eight Fish Landing sites to further boost aquaculture in the area.

“We will ensure the landing sites have cold storage, processing and beach management units to optimise profits,” he explained.
