In an interview, Kenneth mentioned that fish farming is profitable and that he commenced the business after receiving training.

His words: “I started farming with my parents, although it was on a small scale level ( backyard farming). But I ventured into fish farming after I attended an agribusiness seminar around 2017. That was when a family friend intended to start a catfish farm in our place. So after the training, I started doing it experimentally, and gradually, it got bigger.”

Kenneth explained that young people often hesitate to engage in farming due to the perception that it lacks glamour. However, he noted that the narrative is shifting as more youthful individuals are now embracing diverse forms of agriculture.

He said: “They shy away because they feel it doesn’t look all glamorous. Although the narrative is changing with most young people going into it now.”

On what it takes to start a fish farm, Kenneth said the business is very capital-intensive even though it is lucrative.

His words: “Yes, it’s lucrative, although fish farming is capital intensive if you intend doing large scale. Requires learning, patience and your time.”
