Abstract:

The intuitional perspective of environment Pollutants Impact Severity on Artisanal Fisheries Resources in Niger Delta area of Nigeria was conducted for a period of one year (January 2008 December 2008) to determine severity of environmental pollutants impacting on fisheries resources conservation and management in the Niger Delta region based on the opinion of relevant institutional personnel perspective, The study area covered include three core fishing states of Bayelsa, Delta and Rivers States. Questionnaires were used to obtain desired information which was divided into 2 categories: middle level/technical and management officers. A total sample size of 105 respondents in the study area was taken using exhaustive sampling technique fort he institutions and random sampling technique to choose respondents within institutions where the sample population was found to be high (n>30). The data collected was subjected to analysis using binomial regression analysis, Kendall Rank coefficient of concordance, Likert mean and Likert mean of mean analysis. From the results, the severities of environmental parameters on fisheries resources were considered to significantly impact on fisheries resources by the respondents. The ranking and Likert mean of mean analysis result showed that all studied pollutants were significantly implicated to impact on fisheries resources in the Niger Delta region with LMm = 3.13. The Kendall ranking also showed that crude oil related pollutants such as oil spills, gas flaring and thermal pollution were ranked as the most severe pollutants impacting on fisheries resources of the region. This result is expected considering that the three states and the region is predominantly crude oil producing.
