What We Do

Lobby and Advocate on all aquaculture policies and legislations

Policy and regulatory bottlenecks hinder the development of aquaculture by smallholder fish farmers and discourage investment by other value chain actors. One of the key functions of the Association is to ensure that the policies and legislations put in place favour the development of the fish farming industry in Kenya. There is still a lot that needs to be done to create a better enabling environment for for fish farming in Kenya.  AAK together with other stakeholders within the fish value chain will work together to formulate and implement policy where it is non-existent.

Promotion of information, networking and communication among fish farmers and other stakeholders

Information and networking gap among fish farmers must be addressed to improve communication and knowledge of aquaculture development in the Kenya.
