Currently all fish caught in Lake Victoria in Siaya County are purchased by fish processors from outside the county. The fishermen are sometimes forced to sell their produce at throw away prices due to lack of cold storage. The fish is processed for export in other counties and all of the value added income is lost. The high levels of poverty along the Lakeshore leads to various social and health problems in the surrounding communities. A fish cooling and processing plant would therefore, provide the fishermen with a ready local market for their produce at fair prices. The increased income would contribute positively to uplifting the standards of living along the lakeshore.
