Climate change has indeed affected fish production; however, the practice of integrated farming provides a sustainable pathway to increase food production and climate smart practices. Thus, this study assessed level of integrated fish farming practice in Ogun State, Nigeria. Questionnaire was used to collect data on training needs, constraints to farming, and level of integrated fish farming practice from 124 fish farmers. The data collected were analyzed using frequency, percentage and mean. The mean values revealed that insect and disease control (1.40); type of enterprises to integrate with fish production (1.17) were the major training needs reported by the respondents. Insufficient access to farm land (1.56) was the major constraint to the practice of integrated fish farming. Fish farmers integrated fish and vegetable (0.65) and poultry production (0.62) respectively than other enterprises. However, most (63.7%) of the fish farmers had low practice of integrated fish farming. The study therefore concludes that there was high need for training on integrated farming. Hence, it is recommended that adequate training should be provided, access to land should also be created to enable the farmers innovate and practice integrated farming and consequently improve income and food security.
