Sustainable Management of Fisheries Resources

This component supports the reform of the governance of fisheries in the Kenyan 200 nautical miles EEZ.  The support includes legislation and regulatory review, capacity building and the strengthening of monitoring, control and surveillance (MCS) of fishing activities.

In addition, this component also addresses the need for promoting research on fish stocks, value addition and market chain enhancement including access to markets and credit for more sustainable and profitable fishing practices including promoting non-consumptive activities in support of the tourist sector.

KCDP also supports aquaculture programs through investing in aquaculture research to inform sustainable development of the industry.

The Component’s objectives are to increase benefits and revenue generation derived from coastal fisheries through:

 

  1. Improving governance including monitoring, control and surveillance of the fishery in the EEZ.
  2. Advancing research on coastal and near-shore fish stocks, promoting alternative fishing technologies, and supporting linkages between fishermen and processors and fishmongers.
  3. Increasing fish production through aquaculture.
  4. Promoting and developing value addition of fish catches in the coastal fisheries and the affected communities.

 

Sustainable Management of Fisheries Resources will promote long term management effectiveness of fisheries resources and enhance the benefits and revenue generation derived from coastal fisheries through:-
  1. Governance and management of offshore and coastal fisheries resources

  2. Research on fish stocks, fish value addition and market chain enhancement;

  3. Fish production through sustainable aquaculture development
