7 ways in which the government should conserve fisheries

The following are ways in which the Kenyan government should conserve fisheries:

  • Licensing fishermen to control their number thus preventing overfishing
  • Restricting fishing to specific seasons to allow breeding and maturing of fish
  • Enforcing international conventions to protect endangered fish species
  • Restocking of overfished waters by breeding fingerlings in the fish farms and releasing them to fisheries
  • Use of standard-sized nets to ensure that only mature fish are caught
  • Restricting the disposal of untreated wastes into fisheries to avoid pollution
  • Monitoring or discouraging the entry of foreign fishermen off the Indian Ocean water
