Commercial Fishing, Seafood, Aquaculture, Marine & Oceans in Kenya


Fishery Industry in Kenya - Export Processing Zones Authority - Kenya has a long history of fishing with the Luo, Luhyia, and Abasuba ethnic groups having been active fishermen for more than five centuries. Until 20 years ago nearly all fish caught in Kenyan waters was consumed locally. Kenya started to export fish in the early 1980s, when fish processing factories were established around Lake Victoria. Thus over the past 20 years, the fisheries sub-sector has gradually evolved from a domestic consumption oriented industry to an export oriented industry with value added processing being applied.

Kenya is a coastal state with a marine coastline of 536 Kilometres and a well-developed marine fishing industry. In spite of this, Lake Victoria continues to dominate Kenya's fishing output source. The lake currently accounts for over 90% of the tonnes of fish caught while marine fishing accounts for only 4% of the total output. Kenya claims 6% of Lake Victoria's total surface area, with 43% being owned by Uganda and 51% by Tanzania. Lake wide fish production is estimated at between 400 – 500 metric tons with Tanzania landing 40%, Kenya 35% and Uganda 25%. The landed value of this catch is between USD 300 – 400 million annually.

The fisheries sub-sector provides employment and income to over 500,000 Kenyans engaged in fish production and related enterprises. In terms of contribution to the gross domestic product (GDP), Kenya's fishing industry has accounted for 0.3% of GDP for the period 1999-2003. Kenya’s annual average production for the period 1999-2003 was 171,000 metric tonnes with a value of approximately KShs 8 billion in 2003. About 30% of the fish is exported to countries in Europe and other non-European countries.

Fishing in Kenya is mostly carried out by artisanal fishermen operating small fishing boats in inland lakes and marine waters. A small proportion of fish in Kenya is obtained from fish farming (aquaculture). The inland lakes are Lake Victoria, Lake Turkana, Lake Baringo, Lake Naivasha and smaller Lakes including Chala and Jipe. About 92% of fish comes from Lake Victoria and the rest from the Indian Ocean (4%), inland lakes and rivers (3%) and aquatic culture (1%)


Kenya Marine and Fisheries Research Institute - Kenya Marine and Fisheries Research Institute (KMFRI) is a State Corporation in the Ministry of Agriculture Livestock and Fisheries. It is mandated to conduct aquatic research covering all the Kenyan waters and the corresponding riparian areas including the Kenyan's EEZ in the Indian Ocean waters. The Institute was established by an Act of Parliament (Science and Technology Act, Cap 250 of the Laws of Kenya) in 1979 and run by a Board of Management.


Fishery and Aquaculture Country Profile for Kenya - aquatic species caught by country or area, by species items, by FAO major fishing areas, and year, for all commercial, industrial, recreational and subsistence purposes. The harvest from mariculture, aquaculture and other kinds of fish farming is also included.


The Ocean Data and Information Network for Africa (ODINAFRICA) brings together marine institutions from twenty-five Member States of the Intergovernmental Oceanographic Commission of UNESCO from Africa (Algeria, Angola, Benin, Cameroon, Comoros, Congo, Cote d'Ivoire, Egypt, Gabon, Ghana, Guinea, Kenya, Madagascar, Mauritania, Mauritius, Morocco, Mozambique, Namibia, Nigeria, Senegal, Seychelles, South Africa, United Republic of Tanzania, Togo, and Tunisia). The goal of the current phase of ODINAFRICA is to improve the management of coastal and marine resources and the environment in participating countries by: enhancing data flows into the national oceanographic data and information centres in the participating countries, strengthening the capacity of these centres to analyse and interpret the data so as to develop products required for integrated management of the coastal areas of Africa, and increase the delivery of services to end users.


AQUASTAT is FAO's global information system on water and agriculture developed by the Land and Water Division. It collects, analyses and disseminates data and information by country and by region. Its aim is to provide users interested in global, regional and national analyses with comprehensive information related to water resources and agricultural water management across the world, with emphasis on countries in Africa, Asia, Latin America and the Caribbean.
