This study was conducted to evaluate the socio-economic analysis of small scale fish farming enterprise of the Lagos state fish farming estate in Ikorodu, Nigeria. The primary data were obtained from 60 respondents with structured interview guides, which were selected using simple sampling techniques. The results reveals that the majority (88.3%) of the fish farmers are male while (31.40%) are in the active age distribution of 31-40 years, university education (63.0%) and (58.3%) were married, majority (73.4%) of the respondent had a household size that range between 3 -5 persons. Results of the Descriptive analyses and tests of significance however showed that there was is a significant relationship between socio-economic characteristics and constraint of fish farming in the estate, there is also a significant relationship between income of fish farmers and constraints of the fish farm enterprise. Implications of these findings were critically examined, and pertinent recommendations were proffered based on the salient findings in the study.
