Abstract

The study assessed farmers’ technologies on integrated and non integrated fish farming in Ogun State Nigeria. Multi stage Random sampling techniques was used to select 133 non - integrated fish farmers (NIFF) and 216 integrated fish farmers (IFF) (n = 349) from the study area. Data were analysed using chi-square, T-test and Pearson Product moment correlation. Results showed that 92.5% of NIFF were male compared to IFF (90.7%). Also, 96.8% of IFF and 79.7% of NIFF were married. The mean ages of sampled farmers were 44 years (NIFF) and 46 years (IFF) while the mean fish farming experiences were 4 years (NIFF) and 5 years (IFF). More so, 99.1% of IFF identified pond site selection as one of the key technologies used in integrated fish farming compared to 95.5% recorded for NIFF.
