Fisheries

Accomplishments

The Fisheries sector in Kajiado is an underutilized sector, but one which has a lot of potential. While there are not habitats and there has been little technical training, the County Government of Kajiado has begun exploring opportunities which can have significant economic impact for those we engage in fisheries.
In the past year, the County has provided liners for building ponds as well as provide the fingerlings to stock them. As these preliminary sites prove to be a success and generate income for the local communities, the County plans to expand its efforts and create a brand new sector of the economy
