Nigeria requires about 2.3 million metric tonnes of fish and fisheries product for good health at the recommended 19 kg/capital consumption/year by FAO to enhance the attainment of food security and other Millennium Development Goals (MDGs). Fish and Fisheries products still remain the most affordable and major sources of animal protein, contributing about 40% of animal protein intake of Nigerians, especially the rural poor. The under-utilization of this opportunity has led to a huge gap between present production and harvestable potentials in fisheries, a situation which is partly attributable to weak extension management systems in the fisheries subsector.
