Author(s): Waithaka E, Keyombe JL and Lewo R

Lake Naivasha is a Ramsar site of international importance (1997). The Lake’s fishery is based on exotic species. The main threats to the lake Naivasha fishery include Illegal, unreported and unregulated fishery and unsustainable resource exploitation both within the lake and its catchments. The fisheries management should train, support and collaborate with the local beach management units and fishing communities to sustainably manage the resource and stem the increasing illegal, unreported and unregulated fishing.
