The Kamuthanga Fish Farm, created by Food Tech Africa, is the largest aquaculture operation in Kenya and probably in East Africa too. The complex system of tanks tunnels and pipes which host about one million fingerlings is just a marvel to behold a superb stop-over point while visiting Machakos.
This facility alone provides 58 skilled positions to local workers and is training even more. FTA has ensured that at least 25 of these jobs belong to women. Kamuthanga is capable of producing up to 1000 tonnes (1,000,000 kilograms) of fish per year, which is enough to feed approximately 140,000 people.
