MANAGEMENT AND CONSERVATION OF IN-LAND FISHERIES RESOURCES IN NIGERIA:

(A CASE STUDY OF OSIMIRI DUDU FLOOD POND IN

ANAMBRA STATE).

ABSTRACT

 

In this research work the important of appropriate institutional arrangements for the development of in-land fisheries enhancement strategies in Anambra state is emhasined .

Chapter one contains a general discussion based on the general trend of fish production  in most intend water bodies in Nigeria and high lighted some factors which where  though to be responsible for the drastic decline .  furthermore this chapter highlighted the activities of some of various institutional that are responsible for coordinating the activities of in-land water bodies in Nigeria can the view of some individual contributor.  It went further to state the problem and limitation of the study and finally the definition of terms.

In addition a number of case studies of traditional fisheries management techniques operated at the village level example construction if fish shelters in seasonal pools as well as some other related materials are outlined and reviewed in chapter two as part of literature review.

Chapter three deal of literature review the method used in collecting data of the study the way the questionnaire were constructed distributed and the treatment of data.

Chapter four deal with data presentation and analysis.

This paper finished in chapter five with an identification of the opportunities and constraints for future fisheries enhancement strategies in Nigeria.  It also contains the conclusion drawn from all the analysis and findings of the research work can the recommendation made.

CHAPTER ONE

 

1.0       INTRODUCTION

1.1                  BACKGROUND TO THE STUDY

            In recent years there has been a growing concern that the fisheries in most water bodies in Nigeria a have been increasingly over exploited leading  to reduction in socio- economic benefits far local communities and they regional economy in general.  It has been estimated that most of the world’s major inland fisheries are now at their maximum level of exploitation (FAO1995) for example before now the formal East central state now consist of (Anambra Imo Enugu and Abuja) were know for their richness in terms of natural resources particularly in the area  of  fish production. For instance during 1980’s about 40% of the total fish supplied in Nigeria were produced form these region.  But as time goes on   there become a drastic decline in fish production from these region.

This became a matter of specially concern to the people of these region. However it is on record that recently specifically in March 2005 that president Obasanjo in his official visit to Delta State was asked why the present government is hesitating in signing into law a bill that would pave way for the draining of River Niger in the region in order to allow for confluence of Rivers so as to increased fish spawning.  His answer was” there are more it takes to attaining  full production in fisheries production than only to draining Rivers”

Meanwhile, combinations of factors were though to be responsible. Firstly environmental changes caused by drought and dam construction has resulted on lower fish production.  Secondly an intensification of fishing effort has been brought about increased  communalization the introduction of modern  gears restriction (such as gears net mesh net etc) which are used in capturing  fish. Furthermore welcome and  Barthey discovered that catches  from in-land fisheries are Indic line state due to deteriorating quality of aquatic environment
