Some issues in culture fisheries management and practices were reviewed to enlighten fish culturist. Fish culture like other agricultural practices encounters several problems. The various land tenure systems encourage land fragmentation, which hinders an intensive fish culture. Lack of good roads and transport facilities for the transportation of fish from rural to urban areas, lack of government assistance to fish farmers to established fish farms is also not out of place. Pest, predators, competition and disease hinder fish culture practices. The production system also presents risks to public health. The closed nature of a fishpond system, associated industries and the introduction of non-endemic species into natural water arising from their inadvertent release from aquaculture facilities is considered a serious environmental threat. These and others are some issues in culture fisheries management and practices. The key areas discussed are: Land tenure system, fish farming infrastructures, the culture system, hazards and risks, environmental pollution, habitat modification, food safety and public health hazards, fish diseases, competition, health implications, population migration, agricultural development projects and human diseases.
