Chapter
Oil-bearing communities in the Niger Delta region of Nigeria are faced with the adverse effects of pollution that emanates from oil and gas exploration and exploitation activities in the region. Although sabotage has been blamed for almost every spill, unconfirmed reports indicate that there is gross negligence on the part of oil companies operatin...

Hatching requirements and description of Stage I larva of the estuarine river prawn, Macrobrachium macrobrachion. For the effective propagation of any species, techniques need to be developed for adoption by farmers. In line with this, a study was carried out to determine the hatching requirements and larval development of Stage I larva of the es-t...

A baseline study of the intertidal and subtidal zones of the Andoni flats was conducted to determine the basic physical and chemical characteristics of the sediment. Sediment characteristics revealed sandy to loamy (muddy) sand soils with pH of 4.09 to 5.04. Values of organic carbon varied from 0.17% in the sandy soil to 3.01% in the muddy sand soi...

Physicochemical characteristics of the interstitial fluid of the sediment of the intertidal and subtidal zones of the Andoni flats were studied. The results for the interstitial fluid showed low dissolved oxygen levels (0.1 – 1.3mg/l), high temperature values (26.2 -32.4°C), wide salinity range (8 – 21ppt) and near neutral pH (6.26 – 7.76) across s...

The Niger Delta region with a coastline of 400 km is located in Southern Nigeria. A vast area of about 20,000 km 2 and the drainage basin of the Niger and Benue Rivers confluence empties into the Atlantic Ocean. Shrimp production in the Niger Delta has been practiced for decades through harvesting of wild shrimps by artisanal fishermen and shrimp t...

The cost of and demands for available land for residential and industrial purposes are increasing as the human population is increasing. Water quality is one of most critical factors besides good feed/feeding in fish production and it varies with culture systems or media amongst other factors. Surface water samples were collected from freshwater ti...

The purpose of this paper is to create awareness on the significance of integrated fish farming in organic waste reclamation, recycling and re-use. Example of integrated fish farming practiced at a micro-level in the Niger Delta of Nigeria is crop-snailry-poultry (Chicken) - livestock (pig) - cum-fish production. In this system, fish production rem...

Project
The goal of the project is to advise the Project Owner on the sustainable options for establishing fish farms cutting across the value chain. Also, to provide jobs for youth and help them in creating meaningful livelihoods while providing fish protein to the teeming populace. The needs assessment in the various locations to be selected for the project will also be carried out. In establishing the farms best practices would be carried out to ensure durability and economic viability.
