Abstract: "The performance of the catfish, Ciarias gariepinus (Burchell) cultured in earthen ponds at Alakotomeji, Lagos State is discussed with particular reference to growth, fingerling sizes for stocking, feeds and mortality records. Catfish of between 1.0 kg to 1.5 kg were obtained in a six-month growth period. Major problem facing the farm was poaching which completely reduced the yield. Except a solution is found to the poaching problem, the future of aquaculture in Nigeria is very bleak."
