The Feed Challenges Of Fish Farmers In Nigeria by sunwitfeed: 7:38am On Apr 10, 2019
Nigeria is among the largest fish consumers in the world with over 1.5 million tons of fish consumed annually, yet its domestic fish catch is estimated at 450,000 metric tons per year (Ezenwa & Anyanwu, 2003; Jim, 2003).  The supply – demand gap N80 billion per annum is spent on fish importation (Odeh, 2013) despite our numerous water bodies, floodplains, reservoirs and river basins. Aquaculture in NIGERIA ---great expansion are held back by persistent bottlenecks such as access to good-quality inputs (feeds and fingerling) due to its high cost, poor water quality management and low technological input.

Fish culture involve input of supplementary and complete feed, which account for up to 40 % and 60 % of production costs respectively and can sometimes negate the economic viability of a farm if suitable feed are not used. This problem has become a major source of fear and phobia to many prospective fish farmers in Nigeria and urgent solution must be proffered if fish farming is to be attractive, lucrative and sustainable. Quality fish feed can be formulated from our local raw materials but the problem of instability or non-floatability of these locally produced feed caused farmers to depend on foreign pelleted feed.

I can boast of compounding a very rich and good fish feed but my only issue is how to be able to afford a cheap and durable pelletizing machine, considering the fact that one is just starting up and lack support or grant from any angle.
