The Argungu International Fishing and Cultural Festival is one which surrounds fish capture by a very large community. Given the importance of fish in the augmentation of the rural protein intake for Nigerians the fishing festival assumes a dual prominence among a people (Nigerians), who constitutes the largest concentration of black race anywhere in the world. In spite of its growing prominence, only very little empirical literature exists on the socio-economic and socio-cultural implications of the festival. This is the major Fishing Festival along the West African Coast, and any attempt to achieve any meaningful development of the festival requires knowledge of the socio-economic and socio-cultural implications of the festival in all its ramifications. This book, therefore, provides empirical evidence of the economic and sociological significance of the festival. This book should help shed some light on the socio-economic and socio-cultural perspective of the festival, and should be useful especially as a guide for developmental decision by stakeholders and interested audience, with a view to boosting tourist attraction to the festival and enhancing fish capture at the festival.
