Abstract
  • Capture fisheries is a primary employment for inhabitants of coastal and inland aquatic ecosystems globally. However, historically, aquaculture has been well documented as an economic activity in Southeast Asia. Coastal marine fisheries and freshwater inland waters provided employment for inhabitants of these ecosystems in Sub-Saharan Africa (SSA). Aquaculture was started in Africa over four decades ago. Yet, the activities have not substantially contributed to domestic fish production, hence, the need for the hosting of the NEPAD Fish for All Summit by President Olusegun Obasanjo of Nigeria in Abuja, August 2005. The Summit ended with a unanimously adopted Abuja Declaration. This is a positive strategy for putting fisheries and aquaculture on NEPAD's Future Actions in the process of developing Agriculture in all 53 SSA countries. This paper examined the issues that will enhance the objectives of putting fisheries and aquaculture on the future agenda of NEPAD. Nigeria's fisheries and aquaculture was used as an example for the implementation of the Abuja Declaration as a follow-up action. The Private and Public Sector contributions to a successful action plan are extensively discussed. Recommendations hinge on the issues inhibiting farming Nigeria’s waters for economic growth as a nation and as a unique market for fisheries and aquaculture in West and Central Africa.
