Abstract or Summary
  • Irregular consumption of animal protein has been a problem confronting resource poor rural households in Oyo State. This study therefore investigated determinants of rural household demand for fish in Oyo State, Nigeria. Multistage sampling procedure was used. Ten Local Government Areas (LGAs) were purposively selected. Five LGAs were selected adjacent to Water Bodies (WB) while five others were selected randomly from other LGAs as Non Water Bodies (NWB). Twenty rural communities and 125 rural communities’ households were randomly selected from each of the WB and NWB LGAs. Structured questionnaire was used to collect data during dry (DS) and wet seasons (WS) for 18 months. Data were analyzed using descriptive statistics and probit regression at α0.05. Results show that Scomber species (23.7%), Clarias gariepinus (17.1%) and Heterotis niloticus (20.3%) were mostly consumed fish species during WS. In DS, Panulirus spp. (10.4%), Clarias gariepinus (27.5%) and Heterotis niloticus (12.5%) were mostly consumed. Price of capture fresh water fish positively and significantly affected fish demand in the dry season. But price of marine fish was negatively significant in non-water body and in the entire sample. Per capita household income was significant during the dry season and the entire sample. Price of culture fish significantly affected fish demand in the dry and rainy season and entire sample.  Household income was negatively significant in both seasons and the entire sample. It was concluded that presence of water body, seasonality and various rural household factors affected demand for captured, marine, cultured fish species.
