Meaning of Fishery Regulation:

Fishery regulation is a set of rules and laws governing the exploitation and other practices of fishery resources, especially in open-access water.

In other words, fishery regulations are laws made by the government in order to control and protect fish harvesting so that fish do not go into extinction and for them (fishes) to be in regular supply.

Basic Laws and Regulations of Fishing:

Fishing regulations or decrees in Nigeria were promulgated in 1971 during General Yakubu Gowon’s regime.

The regulations are:

i. Close Season: This is a regulation in which no fishing is permitted to take place for a given period of time. This allows the smaller fishes to grow and mature.

ii. Catch Quota: Catch quotas entitle fishermen to catch a certain amount (usually in kgs or tonnes) of a fish species, fish stock, or sometimes a group of species/stocks, in a fishing season which can be up to a year in length. It also regulates the number of fishermen by issuing them fishing permits or licenses at a specific amount.
