Nigerian Exported Fish Has Been Banned By American Authorities

Nigerian Exported Fish Banned, Exporter loses N20m. An exporter of processed fish from Nigeria has lost an equivalent of N20 million after his merchandise was seized and destroyed by port authorities in the United States.

Processed fish from Nigeria has been denied access to the United States of America market since February this year, said the Association of Fish Farmers and Allied Fish of Nigeria (CAFFAN).

The national president of CAFFAN, Mr. Oloye O. Rotimi, said this while speaking with the Daily Trust shortly after the inauguration of the newly elected Abuja Chapter executive of the association’s weekend in Abuja.

“The problem with us is twofold: one caused by our officials. There is a documentation that they needed to pass through the United States Department of Agriculture that was requested three times, they refused to comply and the United States prohibited our processed fish. That has been since February. And you will not believe it until November, this problem is still there.

“Many of the fish that people had on the way to America were captured and destroyed. “This is serious, I know a farmer who exported fish worth $ 55,000 and lost it by carelessness on the part of officials,” Oloye said.

He said that other people in Africa are taking advantage of Nigeria, adding that “they will come here, take our packaged products as products from Ghana and Kenya and send them to this same America. I’ve been there and at least I’ve studied some of the African stores in the United States, the fish that comes from Nigeria is the best. ”

Mr. Oloye highlighted the challenges facing the aquaculture industry in Nigeria today to include access to finance, marketing, the cost of inputs and the lack of adequate knowledge of farmers about the subsector.

Also speaking with the Daily Trust, the newly elected president of the chapter of the association in Abuja, Alhaji Mundu H. Mohammed, promised to establish a structure that allows FCT fish farmers to obtain a good return on their investments.
