Fingerling production and availability of quality fish feeds have been bottlenecks for development of fish farming inNigeria for the past 40 years. Over the past several years, private sector fingerling production has increased from more than 30 million per year in 2001 to more than 30 million per annum at present with several large producers delivering more than 300,000 fingerlings monthly. Domestic production of high quality fish feeds has also begun through the dynamic private sector. Relief on these two fronts and high demand for catfish has unchained the fish farming industry, which is now growing at a steady rate.
