Nlewadim, A.A. and Deekae, S.N. (1997) Collection of juvenile mullet species from a brackishwater tidal farm in Nigeria. Naga, the ICLARM Quarterly, 20(2), pp. 19-20.
The major constraint to the development of aquaculture in Nigeria has been the non-availability of fingerlings in required numbers of cultivable species. A specifically designed trap to collect mullet (Liza falcipinnis; Liza grandisquamis) juveniles during high tides was successful in collecting juveniles year-round. The collectors was more successful during night spring tides than during neap tides or daytime collections. Thus, the use of traps, especially in the tidal zones, could provide a cost-effective method of stocking fish farms by collecting juveniles and seed from the natural environment.
