County bans fishing along Lake Naivasha

By Antony Gitonga | July 27th 2020

The department of fisheries has now banned fishing along the shores of Lake Naivasha. 

In a raft of measures meant to save the fisheries sector that is facing collapse, the county has also outlawed night fishing and formed a special unit to patrol the troubled lake.

The department also announced that local traders dealing in fishing gear will have to be licensed by the county government in a bid to control import of illegal nets. 

According to Agriculture CEC Dr Immaculate Maina, a taskforce to look into the challenges facing the lake would be formed in two weeks. 

According to the national vice-chairman Beach Management Unit Lucas Auma, illegal fishermen had taken over the lake.
