About

• Collection of samples, gathering information and summarising biological data
• Conduction of multiple studies to increase our understanding of the types of fishes in the Kenyan coastline
• Mapping and identification of the various types of fishes in different fishing habitats
-
• Bachelor of Science in Industrial Microbiology and Biotechnology
• Higher Diploma in Medical microbiology
• Ordinary Diploma in Applied Biology
• I have participated in three major research projects. These are EEC, South West Indian Ocean Fisheries Project (SWIOFP), and Kenya Coastal Development Project (KCDP). In all cases i have mainly been in Fisheries Programmes.
• The EEC Project was based in Gaze about 45Km to the south of Mombasa Island.. Beach seine nets were used for sampling. Fish samples collected were then identified , sorted out to species level and then weighed. Their individual total and standard lengths were also measured. Some were transported to the laboratory for further biological analysis.
• SWIOFP on the other hand concentrated in the Kenyan Deep waters. It consisted of Trawl ,Trap and Dropline surveys and targeted the crustaceans. Nets were used in the trawl surveys and only three sets would be made in a day. Samples were randomly picked, weighed and then sorted out to species level. For the fishes, different species were weighed and their individual total lengths measured. Crustaceans were likewise weighed and individually had their carapace lengths measured. Traps were set at different marked areas , stayed overnight and retrieved the following day. Fish samples were all identified, sorted to species level and individually measured for total lengths. Crustaceans had their carapace and weights taken too. Dropline one targeted some fishes and hooks were used here. Samples were all weighed and measured for individual total and standard lengths.
• KCDP covered Malindi-Unguana Bay and targeted shrimps. Samples were collected from fishermen , sorted to species level weighed and individually sexed and measured for carapace lengths. In Kilifi, Gaze and Vanga ring nets were used targeting pelagic fishes. Fishing grounds were marked fish samples collected weighed and measured individually for the various lengths.
• Currently i am supervising two (2) Undergraduate Marine Resource Management students on attachment from Technical University of Mombasa. They are Amina Khamis Mtsomo and Orettah Addah Atieno.
