Summary

Over fishing due to poor methods of fish and environmental conservation in Lake Victoria has led to dwindling supplies of wild catch from the lake. The two main commercially captured species of fish are Nile Perch and Tilapia. In order to increase fish supplies, the National and County governments started encouraging fish farming on land and in the lake. The ponds and cages mainly farm Tilapia with some catfish as Nile Perch cannot be grown in captivity. This project has the effect of decreasing pressure on the diminishing wild catch stocks and creates an opportunity for better planning in conservation.
