Nigerian Institute for Oceanography and Marine Research Annual Report, 1995.
During the year under review, attention was focussed on the survey of white shrimp fishery and its mechanisation status in Nigeria. Survey results indicate that at sea, the crayfish beam trawl fishery is all year round, but rough from July to September. Catches are therefore better from October and best between December and June. However, where rains are heavy and early, stow net shrimp fishery at sea is best from January to March. Within the year a series of violent Swells/sourges devastate the Victoria Island beach in Lagos. The preliminary survey of the Institute showed that nourished beach is slightly above the level of the Ahmadu Bellow way. The present low nature of the beach was not adequate enough to absorb the shock impounded by the swell, hence the resultant flooding. The study of the shallow surface geology of the Nigerian Continental Shelf is an important project of the Institute. It is expected that the information available will constitute part of the data .....
