“It Is An Offence To Import Live Fish Into Nigeria Without License”

Live fish (fresh water fish) cannot be imported into Nigeria without license from the Minister of Agriculture. It is an offence to make such importation and punishable with a fine not more than #40.00 for first time offenders, then an amount not exceeding #200.00 and or an imprisonment of not more than 6 months for second time offenders. Also, such fish, any substance or product made from the fish will be forfeited to government.

My authorities are sections 1, 2, 3 and 5 of the Live Fish (Control of Importation) Act, 1965.
