Fight against blue economy threats earns Kenya friends

Illegal fishing, ocean pollution, climate change, ocean noise and ship strikes are some of the threats to the blue economy that Kenya and other countries are facing.

At the same time, like other African Union States, Kenya has suffered incursions into its territorial waters by foreign fishing companies.

It is under this shade of economic torment that the country has announced it will harmonise its regulations with other Africa Union States to facilitate sustainable exploitation of opportunities in the multi-billion blue economy.

State Agencies in charge of the sector said Kenya should combine efforts with other countries to combat these illegal activities threatening aquatic life.

Kenya has an implementation secretariat chaired by Rtd General Samson Mwathethe domiciled in the president’s office.
