Abstract or Summary
  • Women are recognized as agents of changes and development .Their involvement in aquaculture is one issue that needs to be addressed when dealing with rural communities and poverty alleviation among the rural women .The major way to ensure that women utilize their full potentials in profitable aquaculture is to provide capacity building support which would eventually lead to poverty alleviation among them .The role of women in adopting new aquaculture technology has been restricted and often ignored because of the socio-cultural taboos against them. This paper enlightens women on the different stages of production in aquaculture that they could be involved in, as fishers for home consumption, they contribute significantly to the nutritional needs of their families. The idea is to empower the women with modern technologies in aquaculture to generate enough revenue to sustain their families and save the society from menace of fish scarcity. When women are involved in aquaculture production, it will go a long way in achieving the millennium development goals of eradicating extreme poverty, hunger and empowering women in Nigeria.
