It has been organised by Kiambu County Government in collaboration with Farm Africa and some 100 key stakeholders.

Kiambu County Executive member for agriculture Dr Monicah Waiganjo said the symposium is also supported by Sustainable Aquaculture Research Networks forsub Saharan Africa (SARNISSA) that reaches more than 300 aquaculture stakeholders in Africa.

The event will create a platform where players in the value chain will exhibit their roles and develop partnerships and networks.

Dr Waiganjo said the symposium whose theme is Strengthening Aquaculture Value Chain in the Eastern Africa region, will have several objectives, among them to create a forum for the participants to showcase their roles in aquaculture.

Experts invited for the three-day event at African Institute for Capacity Development Centre within Jomo Kenyatta University of Technology in Juja, will take farmers through several themes.

These include, fish breeding technology for improved productivity, climate smart aquaculture and service delivery for improved grow-out yields, value addition, processing and marketing for increased aquaculture income, identification and promotion of quality fish feeds technologies and innovations.
