Stockfish is one of the most famous Nigerian food staples. It is the favored ingredient in traditional dishes and cuisines. It can also be found in diverse palates and cooking styles of various ethnic groups. However, prior to the Nigerian Civil War, it wasn’t so. How did stockfish, which surprisingly originates from Norway become a staple In Nigeria Household?
The Nigerian Civil War (6 July 1967 – 15 January 1970), also known as the Biafran War, was a civil war fought between Nigeria and the Republic of Biafra, a secessionist state which had declared its independence from Nigeria in 1967.

Today several decades after the war has ended Nigeria is reportedly the largest importer of stockfish in the world. Some say stockfish has remained hugely popular in Nigeria because of its ability to stay without rot or decay in spite of the hot, humid climate.

Another misplaced priority.

Stock fish was popular within certain group before the war.

Its importation was just another way of making money because it was cheap and useless in Europe where it is used in fireplace.

Just as cheap as importation of used goods, fake expired or empty capsule drugs, pin, pencil and GARBAGE on high seas looking for takers.
