Reasons marine fisheries in Kenya are underdeveloped are;

  • The continental shelf is narrow 
  • Poor transport connections to the fisheries
  • Coastline is fairly straight/has few indentation
  • The water is warm for fish breeding/shallow continental shelf/lack of upwelling water
  • Low demand for fish locally
  • Fishermen lack modern equipment/presentation/storage facilities
  • Inadequate storage facilities – competition from developed countries
