Abstract or Summary
  • One of the major sectors of Bangladesh agriculture is represented by the fisheries sector. Being a deltaic land with numerous rivers and inland haors and beels (lakes and lowland areas of considerable size), and also ponds that are dug in populated areas for the purpose of bathing, washing and often as a source of drinking water, fish has become an integral part of the food culture. In the past, hardly any need was felt for fisheries education and research because population was low and fish was plenty. But they are decreasing day by day. Fish production in the coastal area of Bangladesh has been gradually decreasing over the last few years, which is an alarming issue so far. A study was conducted in 16 coastal villages of four districts of Bangladesh to identify the reasons for decreasing the number of fish population in the rivers. 10 variables are considered for the causes of fish lessening, which are identified through extensive group discussions with the fishermen, physical verification of the villages and related literature review. Few issues like management efficiency, fisherman ignorance, and natural disaster have been analyzed in the study.
