Fisheries: Urgent action needed on overfishing, pollution and climate change. Click
FAO's Committee on Fisheries in Rome this 9th of June, 2014 has called for urgent action and Nigeria should not be left out from the international community.
The Niger delta area is fed with oil pollution and unhealthy oil exploration activities which has left the region threatened with little or no aquatic/fishing life. This is supposed to be the source of livelihood for the rurals but has plunged them into abject poverty and restiveness. Strategies for restoration is imperative for progressive fisheries and other agricultural activities for food production in the area.
