INFORMATION FOR FISHERIES MANAGEMENT IN NIGERIA: THE ROLE OF LIBRARIES AND NETWORKING M.O. Ibeun National Institute for Freshwater Fisheries Research, P.M.B.New Bussa, Nigeria ABSTRACT: A brief overview of the marine and freshwater resources of Nigeria is provided.

Despite extensive fisheries, Nigeria imports. The rest of this chapter is divided into five sections, which are on (1) describing the fisheries sector in Nigeria, (2) examining the marine fisheries resources in Nigeria, (3) the status of marine fisheries production in Nigeria, (4) the marine fisheries regulations in Nigeria, and (5) the constraints to optimal marine fisheries production in Nigeria.

In Nigeria, the most populous country in Africa, fish is an important part of the household diet. Fish makes up around 40% of the country’s protein intake, with fish consumption at kg/person/per year. Total fish production per year is close to 1 million metric tons (, metric tons from aquaculture andmetric tons from fisheries).

The majority of this fish is consumed. The Rainbow Trout Oncorhynchus mykiss is a salmonid fish that is maintained in aquaculture facilities and used as a source of protein around the world.

Veterinarians need accurate, efficient tools and straightforward assessments to evaluate the health status of fish Missing: Nigeria. Exploratory comprehensive survey in the shrimp resources of Nigeria brought the profitability of shrimping to light that triggered off the establishment of industrial commercial fisheries in.

Nigeria’s population is projected to grow from more than million people in to million inbecoming the world’s fourth most populous country. Nigeria’s sustained high population growth rate will continue for the foreseeable future. A statistical survey of the artisanal fisheries of south-eastern Nigeria conducted from September to August showed that the mean catch per canoe fishing unit per year was kg and well within the 95% confidence interval of existing earlier estimates.

The quality of smoked fish from Nigeria has been found to be within acceptable quality limits specific by various regulatory agencies. Anthonio, G.B.O. (), Fish Marketing Survey in the.

Parts of Nigeria, the soil is sandy soil, stability, and water-poor can not meet the development of fish farming, but many farms without the survey analysis, blind investment and digging fish ponds, to put into production when it found that water leakage in.

A survey of the artisanal fisheries of Kontagora Reservoir was conducted between January – December,using statistical frame survey and catch assessment survey. Five fish families made up seven fish species were recorded.

The fish species Hemichromis fasciatus, a cichlid was. PhDs are always a mountain to climb, says marine scientist and University of Cape Town (UCT) alumnus Dr Jock Currie.

But recreating a demersal fisheries survey, first undertaken along the Agulhas. Sample survey of farmers representing the fish farming community in the area was used. The study result revealed that the high prices of fish feed, declining fish prices and lack of finance were found to be the top ranking serious challenges facing fish farmers in that area.
