Training Workshop on Aquaculture Production and Fish Processing for Unemployed graduate Youths and Women

Monday January 23, 2017

The fisheries sector in general and aquaculture in particular, now occupies a very prominent position in the economy of Nigeria. This is so because from whatever angle you look at it, be it employment generation, poverty alleviation, food security, foreign exchange earning etc, fisheries and aquaculture play major roles especially for the rural poor. Nigerians are large fish consumers with a total demand of 2.6 million MT and we are producing locally about 970,000 MT. part of the deficit of 1.63 million MT is currently met by imports. Nigeria spends close to $1 billion importing fish into the country. Our goal is to be self sufficient in fish production. The deficit in fish production can be met through local production by engaging our youths and women in aquaculture in a more sustainable manner for better standard of living. The trainees after the programme will be empowered with starter pack to start their own fish farming business.
