The Artisanal Fishing Gears, Crafts Technology And Their Efficiency In The Lekki Lagoon, Nigeria

ABSTRACT

The water quality characteristics, artisanal fishing gear and crafts technology and the Fish fauna composition in the Lekki lagoon between March, 2006 and February 2008 were investigated. The water quality analysis indicated that salinity Is drastically increased recently in the lagoon (0.007 4.70%). This study identified three possible sources for saline water intrusion, beyond the sun put in the adjacent lagoons (Lagos and Mahin) salt water intrusion by subsurface flow through the barrier beach from the son and loading of ion through lagoon bottom sediments. The highest used fishings in the two years of study was gillnet 514 (50.00%) and 485 (48.70%) respectively and the lead used firing star was boat seine 8 (0.78%) and 8 (0.80%) respectively. A total of 1027 and 995 functional canoes were involved in the artisanal fisheries between March, 2006 md February 2001.
