Oceans Alive is excited to share that Kilifi County Beach Management Unit (BMU) is taking an important step towards sustainable oceans! They're currently conducting sensitization and awareness activities at Ngomeni BMU to seek approval for their draft legal by-laws that were developed in conformity with the KCBMU Network Constitution 2022 and Fisheries Management and Development Act 2016.
This is a crucial step for member BMUs' participation in the development of key operational policies at the BMU level to improve institutional capacity and fisheries management. With the support of Oceans Alive, the Kilifi County BMU Network is conducting this activity throughout the 17 BMUs in Kilifi County, thanks to the financial support by EU International Partnerships and #PressAcp through #BIOPAMA small term grant.
Oceans Alive and KBMU are partnering to promote sustainable fishing practices in the Kuruwitu community! Ten local enumerators and six Fishing Landing site heads have been trained to conduct a survey on BMU registration and licensing among fishers and value chain actors. This sensitisation exercise will help raise awareness about the importance of proper registration and licensing in the fishing industry.
During the next ten days, the enumerators and Fishing Landing site heads will be working together to gather important data that will help improve fishing practices and protect our oceans. This initiative is a crucial step towards ensuring the sustainability of our fishing industry and preserving our marine ecosystems.This project is supported by EU International Partnerships and Press Acp through #BIOPAMA
