In Nigeria, the most populous country in Africa, fish is an important part of the household diet. Fish makes up around 40% of the country’s protein intake, with fish consumption at kg/person/per year. Total fish production per year is close to 1 million metric tons (, metric tons from aquaculture andmetric tons from fisheries).

The total fish demand for Nigeria based on the Nigeria book estimate of m is m Mt. The domestic fish production from Aquaculture, Artisanal and Industrial fisheries for is m Mt.

Also infisheries contributed % to the Agriculture GDP and contribution of Agriculture to GDP () was %. The artisanal fisheries sector supplies about 90% of domestic fish need in Nigeria, with the balance coming from the industrial sector, largely regarded as fish imports (FDF, ).
