Fish is among the healthiest foods on the planet. It is loaded with important nutrients, such as protein and vitamin D. Fish is also the world’s best source of omega-3 fatty acids, which are incredibly important for your body and brain. The demand for fish in Kenya is enormous as a result of growing human population and decline of fish production from the natural water resources.
