Sustainable development and green economy transition call for innovations that address the simultaneous realisation of economic growth, and improved human and environmental well-being. A holistic and appropriate policy and legislative regime is important to ensure the efficacy of these innovations. This research explored how policies and institutions in Nigeria relate to the need and drive for a sustainable aquaculture industry. The findings show that the policies and regulations do not address all aspects that could give rise to such an industry. The paper suggests the need for a holistic policy and institutions audit to determine their suitability for the new growth and development agendas.
