Abstract

The study objectives were to determine how knowledge acquisition, storage, expertise (Technology) and accessibility influence the performance of Kenya Marine and Fisheries Research Institute.   The study was guided by Resource-Based View (RBV), Knowledge-Based View (KBV), Dynamic Capabilities Theory (DCT) and Social Exchange Theory (SET). Since the study involved gathering of quantitative and qualitative data, it adopted mixed method approach. The study employed a descriptive survey research design, this was due to the prediction of knowledge management strategies and the performance Kenya Marine and Fisheries Research Institute, in the analysis of different trends, and the formulation of hypotheses that directs future actions. The target population was 168 employees from the Kenya Marine and Fisheries Research Institute. The researcher sampled 118 respondents using Yamane formula (2007) formula, by doing so, the chance of bias in participant selection was reduced and the sample was guaranteed to be representative of the whole population.Data was analyzed using descriptive statistics in the form of means, percentages, and frequencies with help of Statistical Package for Social Sciences v25 (SPSS V25) software. Results were displayed in form of pie chart and tables from which inferences and conclusions were drawn. The findings of the study revealed that knowledge sharing had the most significant influence on the performance of Kenya Marine and Fisheries Research Institute while knowledge acquisition had the least influence on performance of Kenya Marine and Fisheries Research Institute. The research finally concluded that knowledge management strategies had a significant effect on the performance of Kenya Marine and Fisheries Research Institute.
