A compelling confluence of market demand, abundant natural resources and an early-stage industry with potential for large scale job creation
It is rare to find such a compelling industry as aquaculture, certainly in East Africa. Aquaculture provides the most environmentally sustainable and affordable source of protein among the traditional livestock categories. With its forward and backward linkages, it is a strong job creator, and Lake Victoria offers almost unlimited opportunities for production. There seems to be no physical or demand constraints for a 10 times growth of the industry over the next decade.
