This study reviews the role of aquaculture engineering in Nigeria’s aquaculture sub-sector. The focus was on solving site selection problems due to environmental, Climatic and hydrological factors, equipment selection and fabrication, and site specific engineering problems. The poor growth of the aquaculture industry in Nigeria in the past is attributed to the poor status of aquaculture engineering. Also emphasis was placed on the shortage of qualified manpower, aquaculture engineers, in Nigeria, and suggestions were made for the short, medium and long term solutions. It is hoped that this review article will elicit a positive shift in policy towards aquaculture engineering in Nigeria and beyond.
