Lake View Fisheries

Lake View Fisheries Ltd (LVF) is one of Kenya’s leading integrated tilapia fish farms. LVF was established in 2013 with the aim of improving the availability of sustainably farmed fish in Kenya through modern aquaculture technology, thereby increasing per capita fish consumption and offering economic opportunities to poor households.

The project

LVF currently supplies aquaculture inputs to 200 fish farmers in the region, including fingerlings and fish feed. Additionally, the company has become specialised in breeding tilapia. It produces its improved variety of tilapia which grows larger and faster, using selective breeding methods applied by the hatchery manager and team.

With support from AgriFI, the project aims to:

  • Integrate 600 cage fish farmers into LVF’s out grower scheme, involving guaranteed market access and access to extension support, high-quality inputs and credit.
  • Train 600 cage fish farmers in good cage management practices, leading to higher quality fish, higher productivity and increased sustainability.
  • Organise and support farmer groups in setting up of aggregation centres, thereby preserving the quality of feed and minimising post-harvest losses.
  • Set up cold storage facilities at farmer group locations.
  • Set up demonstration cages, managed by lead farmers, to demonstrate environmentally responsible cage management practices.
