 en Organic waste reclamation, recycling and re-use in integrated fish farming in the Niger Delta
ORIBHABOR, BJ; ANSA, EJ

Abstract

The purpose of this paper is to create awareness on the significance of integrated fish farming in organic waste reclamation, recycling and re-use. Example of integrated fish farming practiced at a micro-level in the Niger Delta of Nigeria is crop-snailry-poultry (Chicken) - livestock (pig) - cum-fish production. In this system, fish production remains the most important activity. The organic wastes reclaimed, recycled and re-used in this system are: plant matter, chicken and pig excrements; snail, oyster and periwinkle shells, ox blood and bone, fish wastes, palm kernel cake, groundnut cake, pond silt and aquatic fern, Azolla pinnata check for this species in other resources . Other reclaimable, recyclable and re-usable materials are also discussed in this paper. Integrating organic waste reclamation, recycling and re-use in integrated fish farming with treatment, incineration, landfill and composting will help to drastically reduce waste in both rural and urban areas.
