Members of Camp 74 fish farmers Association, Delta State, have threatend to abandon their businesses since it is no longer profit­able to them.

Disclosing this to the press in Asaba, the state capital, the Chairman of the Association, Mr. Chuks Ogbotobo, said that the many challenges encoun­tered in the fish farm, were responsible for their deci­sion to quit the business, if the condition persist.

According to the Chair­man, over 600 fish farm­ers in the farm had lost their fishes to flood, which destroyed their ponds, leading to the escape of the fishes to nearby rivers.

He said that the chal­lenges had been on-going, thus making the farmers to lose interest in the busi­ness.

Lamenting the situa­tion, he asked, “if over 600 youths in the business quit as they have threatened to, if their farms are not pro­tected from damage, what would be the fate of fish consumers in Delta State?

He, therefore, called on the state government to come to their aid so as to enable the ponds in the farm have water for the fishes, without the walkways breaking and destroying the ponds.
