NA Olokor, JO Olokor and LO OlokorAbstract:
The incessant pollution and release of greenhouse gases (GHGs) into the atmosphere is the main contributor to the changing climate due to their ozone depleting activities, thus allowing the passage of harmful infra-red rays to warm up the earth’s surface. Records show an increasing rise in global warming of the earth of roughly 1oc which thus affects all and sundry. Many agricultural activities have been affected by this warming up and not excluded is the fishery sector. The fishery sector is one of the booming industries in Nigeria with a contributing annual GDP of 624,791.738 NGN mn in 2017 . It provides a source of high quality protein as well as employment and income to fish farmers and processors. However, with the increasing warming of the earth, this sector has been greatly affected, not only in Nigeria but the whole world, as oceans, inland bodies and their aquatic inhabitants are being affected by the ozone depleting activities of man. Thus, the need for improved and modern fishery/aquaculture techniques to adapt to the changing climate as well as reduce the release of GHGs from processing activities, into the atmosphere is on the rise; with farmers and scientists alike working around the clock to ensure cleaner and more efficient methods of processing fish in Nigeria.Pages: 345-349 | 74 Views 4 DownloadsDownload Full Article:
