Reasons marine fishing less developed in East Africa are;

  • Inadequate capital to purchase the required equipment
  • Small market for the marine fish due to sparse population along the coast.
  • There is stiff competition from foreign fishermen.
  • Warm water/tropical location discouraged fish breeding.
  • Narrow continental shelf at the coast resulting to low plankton growth
  • Use of small boats/poor technology discouraged deep sea fishing.
