The 547th Inaugural lecture of the University of Ibadan was on Thursday, April 4, 2024, delivered by Professor Adetola Jenyo-Oni of the Department of Aquaculture and Fisheries Management, Faculty of Renewable Natural Resources.

With the title “From Aquatic Splendour to Wealth Creation: Towards Sustainable Management of Nigeria’s Wetland Fisheries Resources”, the lecture was held at Trenchard Hall, University of Ibadan, Ibadan, Nigeria.

in her, Jenyo-Oni, highlighted that the first step towards establishing a connection between Nigeria’s abundant wetland resources and its endowed flora and fauna (plant and animal) resources is sustainable management strategies.

“This can only be done through gathering necessary information on the optimum aquatic environmental health for fish production and fish behavioural responses to natural and human-induced environmental variables. This information, when and if available, can now be collated, unified, and possibly manipulated to favour the enhancement of our fish production capacity in the wetlands to meet Nigeria’s needs,” she explained.
