From its inception in 1962, the University of Lagos has been identified as a potential centre for the development of Marine Biology and Fisheries in Nigeria. At that time, it was the only University/ Institution in Nigeria situated by the sea and it was obvious that it was most suitable for the development of such disciplines. In the absence of a Faculty of Agriculture and taking full benefit of its location by the sea, lagoon and river, the University of Lagos is one of the very rare institutions in the world suitable for the establishment of a Marine Biology and Fisheries programme.
