Victorian Foods CV


Victorian Foods was registered in 2007 and started out as a supplier of whole fish to processing plants within Kisumu City. Dwindling stocks and unscrupulous suppliers drove its founders to look alternatives further North, in Lake Turkana

Victorian Foods is an equal opportunity employer with majority of its 50 staffers being women drawn form local communities at its fishing bays in Turkana or the processing plant at Maili Saba

Nile Perch Facts

Nile Perch (Lates niloticus) is native to rivers and lakes in Africa. It is a large mouthed predator that preys on smaller fish, growing to at least 1.8 meters and 140kg.

A female Nile perch produces up 9 million offspring (most of which do not make it to maturity). Eggs take 20 hours to hatch; their life expectancy is 16 years.

Nile Perch are voracious predators and are responsible for dwindling stocks of smaller fish species like Tilapia, its favourite meal. Nile Perch are easy bait but difficult to haul especially for fully grown four to six footer – Perch stocks have dwindled by up to 80% in Lake Victoria in this decade alone
