Okosa Fishing Festival Ebonyi State

Okosa Fishing Festival

Okosa fishing festival is an annually event observed in the month of February in a lake called OKOSA. This lake harbours different varieties of fishes ranging from Tilapia, catfish, scarfish, prawn, crab etc. This fishes are allowed to grow and reproduce (that is from the end of the festival to the beginning of another).

During this festival, great fishermen from the community compete with each other in all day and night fishing thereby making available excess fresh fishes for consumption at a token price. This festival lasts up to 1-2months. Like Argungu fishing festival in Kebbi State, if this festival is developed it has the ability to attract tourists and will not only promote the host community but will also make Ebonyi state one of the tourist home.
