The data collected were analyzed using the descriptive statistics and Tobit regression model. The Results revealed that majority of the respondent are in their active working age with a mean age of 45.11years. The mean household size was 6.035 while the mean years of formal education 5.2125years. The result showed that 45.0% of the respondents interviewed had no other source of income aside the marketing of fresh fish, 27.5% were artisan, 18.8% were traders and 8.8% were involved in farming activities in order to complement the income received from fish marketing. The mean income realized from fresh fish marketing was ₦13,620.2 . The respondent have a mean years of marketing experience of 11.5625 years. Fifty five percent of the respondent had no access to credit facilities and the common fresh fish sold in the study area were Pangasius (Epiya), Thunnus (Akoniko), Tilapia, Clarias Gariepenus  (Eja Aro) The Tobit regression model used revealed that reflects the significance of the regression coefficient of the independent variable such as years of education, monthly income, access to credit, kilogramme sold per day, access to marketing information on the dependent variable Y which is the level of ICT utilization by the fresh fish marketers in the study area. The findings of this study show that fish marketers ’ access to ICTs in the study area is still mostly conventional, since majority of them depend on the media (radio and television) and the telephones (GSM) for their fish marketing information needs, contacts and enquiries, report preparation and information search. Thus it is also recommended that in addition to the call on government to invest more in fish farming and distribution, women fish marketers should be encouraged to improve their educational status and to participate in cooperatives. This will go a long way to further increase the economic return from fish marketing in the study area in particular and in the nation as a whole.
