Title: Small-scale fish production, processing and marketing in Ibeju-lekki local government area of Lagos State, Nigeria
Alternative Title: This paper used two methods in evaluating fish production: Processing and Marketing in the artisanal fisheries of Ibeju-Lekki Local Government Area of Lagos State. These are questionnaires and Participatory Rapid Appraisal (PRA). The methods clearly brought out the forms and nature of operation of the different types of fishing methods, the fish species landed and processed, the marketing and distribution channels of the final products. Fish production in Ibeju-Lekki LGA depicts all forms and nature of operation of almost all types of fishing gears in the coastal marine waters of Lagos State, Nigeria. Fishing is done all through the year with varying intensities and the fish produced forms the bulk of the fish processed and sold in Lagos State. The fisheries are organized in such a way that the "organogram" is followed religiously through the rank and file (though informal), from the producer through the processor cum marketer to the consumer. Standard prices also exist for fishes along the distribution chain. About 90% of the fish landed are processed (smoked) and sold by the women folk who combine the functions of the processor and marketer. And about 10% are consumed fresh. (8 page document)
