Fishermen in Kenya’s Lake Victoria region are facing serious disruptions in their operations due to floodings.
African Entertainment understands that fishermen in the Lake Victoria region have declared that they have made over Sh1 billion lose in fish sales.
They have also reported suffering destroyed fishing structures and equipment following the backflow in the lake.
This portal understands that for more than six months, the fishing business has suffered because of increasing water levels in the lake, which have destroyed fishing equipment and structures.
The rising water level in Lake Victoria, reports say, has disrupted fishing activities across counties bordering the water resource, undermining production.
Remba Island in Homa Bay used to be a beehive of activity, where fishermen would be busy day and night. But that is no more, according reports.
Homa Bay County Beach Management Units chairman, Edward Oremo, says many fishermen have abandoned fishing because of reduced catches.
