Title: A review of 1973 -1982 tuna fishing activities within Nigeria's eez and the option for Nigeria

Abstract: Examination of published information on temperature, oxygen and other environmental preferences of tuna and tuna like fishes suggests that the Nigerian EEZ should have commercial quantities of the fishes. ICCAT historical catch and effort data analysed are confirmatory. Given the prevailing low level of maintenance consciousness, initial investments and skills required, purse-seine may not be decidedly superior to pole and line as the capture technique. Preferred sizes of vessel type and gear specific scenarios are described. It appears that fuel cost can attract some of the multinational fleets to Nigeria and that transhipment facilities and a local cannery are advantageous.
