COVID-19 provided an opening for Kenya’s fish-farming industry. Chinese tilapia imports have long dominated the market, but health fears and trade bottlenecks have allowed for local farms to gain market share.

Located at the offshore of Roo beach in Homa Bay county, Victory Farms is destined to supplement the tilapia shortage in the country, while changing the lives of locals.

The farm covers 216 acres. It produces its own tilapia in hatcheries, rearing the fingerlings in their ponds, then after some time transferring to cages which cover 56 acres of the lake, 1.5km from the Roo offshore.
