Many fish landing sites on the Kenyan coast have no infrastructure, lacking the depots locally known as bandas. This forces the fishermen to land their fish on bare ground, with all the related risks of contamination, spoilage and subsequent low prices. In partnership with the Fisheries Department, we constructed four fish bandas and four community pit latrines at Likoni, Chale, Gazi and Ozi, and repaired a dilapidated banda at Shimoni, which are all fishing communities in South Coast. This allowed for more hygienic fish handling and provided a place for meetings and centralised fish dispatch to dealers.   Other project activities included training in marketing and leadership, building relationships between stakeholders, and forming a Beach Management Unit to ensure community ownership of the facilities at Likoni. Funding was provided by the Lighthouse Foundation.
