Bungoma Youth have been told to venture into fish farming as a way to gain financial stability.

Bungoma South District Fisheries Officer Kahareri Kiarie disclosed that close to five dams have been submitted for restocking while some are being rehabilitated by the Ministry of Water Development insisting such opportunity should be utilized.

He commended a group of youth around Namasanda dam for initiating a developmental project aimed at utilizing the dam.

“Some youths want to put up ponds alongside Namasanda dam which is a good initiative that must be seen and emulated by others,” he said.

The Fisheries officer added that Chwele fish farm will be used to provide the source of fingerlings for Bungoma County.

Mr. Kahareri encouraged farmers to ensure they get farm orders before harvesting their fish considering fish is perishable to avoid incurring losses.

“Several brokers will always take advantage after you have harvested  your fish to con you. Ensure you get orders first to save your energy and get the benefits you deserve,” he advised.

The officer also disclosed that a government program aimed at educating locals on how to make fish feeds from locally available ingredients was underway and officers had pitched camp in Mayanja area.

“The process has already started in Mayanja with the expectations of ensuring feeds are made without waiting for feeds from Nairobi. We must make use of all materials available,” he said.

Earlier on ponds in Bungoma County were restocked with 1000 fingerlings of which Kimilili had 168 ponds, Webuye 143, Kanduyi 147, Bumula 167, and Sirisia 177 ponds.
