Diversification of fish processing activities
Kenya Fishing Industries Corporation is planning to diversify its activities to other areas other than those undertaken at Liwatoni Fisheries Port. The purpose of diversification is to improve and promote development of fishing and fish trade as well as widen its revenue base which is one of its core mandates. The management organized and conducted surveys on selected fish landing sites both in coastal and Lake Victoria region to gauge the viability of operating the facilities on these landing beaches. A technical report was produced and the management is in the process of selecting one of the sites to work with on a pilot basis. The selected landing sites have Government projects and facilities which are yet to be completed/installed whereas others are completed but have stalled in operations.
