Abstract: "The paper discusses possible approaches to employ in harnessing fish resources in a small sized reservoir. It reveals how capture, extensive and integrated culture fisheries could be beneficially employed to derive maximum gains from the reservoir without jeopardizing its fisheries potentials especially in terms of conservation. "A financial outlay / cost benefit analysis for engaging in combined economic activities of artisanal capture fisheries, fish culture using cages, extensive pen culture and integrated culture practices are given over a period of three years. "This is meant to sensitize / serve as an eye opener for potential fishers as well as intending culturists that the approaches discussed could offer a very good and attractive employment opportunity in fisheries, particularly in these days that Goverrnnent is trying hard at poverty alleviation, economic empowerment and self-sustenance for the masses."
