Fish farming has become one type of aquaculture practiced by most Farmers in Kenya. As the fish population in Kenya’s great lakes including the great Lake Victoria decreases, Farmers are trying to come up with different ways and skills to raise and keep the fish population stable and productive. Aquaculture is rapidly growing in Kenya and alleviating poverty in the most rural areas by creating almost enough job opportunities for most jobless locals.
In most aquaculture Farms, a high production of fish comes through better feeding and a good climate conditions and that’s why most farmers prefer the use of greenhouses to generate enough heat during the breeding and hatching process and also take a huge part in enhancing the growth of fish inside the different division of fish tanks,. Through these farmers can produce and supply a high percentage of fish to consumer’s more than direct lake fishermen can do on their normal fishing days as they face a stiff water hyacinth challenges.
