Fisheries sector is a major employer in the country with at least 80,000 fishermen and fish farmers directly. The sector also provides livelihoods for about 2.3 million Kenyans involved mainly in fish processing and trade.

The fisheries sector is relatively young in export trade, compared to Kenya’s traditional primary export sub-sectors such as agriculture. It contributes about 0.5% of GDP.
