Conscious of the Environment

There are still other places in the word where chemical fishing still takes place despite being illegal in many countries. Apart from side effects on human beings, cyanide which is commonly used kills coral reefs and other life forms that rely on them.

Kenya Marine Center is a strong advocate of safe fishing methods, hand, and net fishing. The company does not only keep this as policy but has also  produced education content on the best fishing practices and shared on various platforms.
