Abstract
Whereas the river fisheries of Nyanza Province, to the west of the Kenya Rift Valley, are extensive and highly developed (Whitehead, 1959A), large parts of the eastward flowing rivers of Kenya, e.g. the Athi and Tana rivers, remain virtually unexploited. The reasons for the lack of interest shown by the indigenous peopl'e settled near the middle and upper reaches of these two rivers are presumably sociological, since large and economically valuable fishes abound in all parts up to about 4,500 ft.
