Small-scale fisheries (SSF) have long been overshadowed by the concerns and perceived importance of the industrial sector in fisheries science and policy. Yet in recent decades, attention to SSF is on the rise, marked by a proliferation of scientific publications, the emergence of new global policy tools devoted to the small-scale sector, and concerted efforts to tally the size and impacts of. to the Bangladesh Bureau of Statistics (BBS), the fisheries sector, including aquaculture and capture fisheries, has had an annual growth exceeding 7% since and contributed 6% to the country's GDP in Freshwater aquaculture led this with an annual growth exceeding 10% over the last decade. Bangladesh is a land of river and she has a diverse fisheries resources. There are freshwater species, marine water species, 24 fresh water prawn species, 36 marine shrimp species and crab, snail, mussel, turtle, etc. in our water body (DoF, ).

Bangladesh’s aquaculture production is impressive, with an average growth of % over the last 10 years, while farming is dominated by small scale farmers. Commercial farming enterprises only represent a small part of production.   Fishing from natural resources is an ancient practice resembling the history of human beings. Particularly this scenario is very common in the rural areas during monsoon.

Driftnets account for nearly 30 per cent of the total marine catch in Bangladesh. With the polyamide (PA) or nylon twine used for constructing the nets getting scarcer and costlier, the driftnetters tend to carry less and less gear, affecting fish catch and incomes.

It is therefore desirable to devise ways to ensure that driftnets cost less and/or produce more. Small-mesh driftnets account for about one-third of the total marine catch of Bangladesh.

This paper reports on the execution and thefindings of experiments to improve the small-mesh driftnet fishery in Bangladesh. They were conducted between April and February bythe project for small-scale fisheries.

In practice, the allowed fishing with driftnets is mostly that referring small-scale driftnets (SSD), e.g. traditional, artisanal fisheries practiced from ancient times, carried out by small boats using drift nets with small mesh size. The debate on the environmental sustainability of driftnets has been particularly active in the last five by: 1.

After careful consideration, banning of particular fishing gear which involve few people but target big mass of fish might be useful option for management of particular fish stocks.

For example, large mesh driftnets have been operated in the Cox's Bazar region for the last two decades, targeting the Indian salmon and long jewfish. Bangladesh is considered one of the most suitable regions for fisheries in the world, with the world's largest flooded wetland and the third largest aquatic biodiversity in Asia after China and India.

Dr. A K M Nowsad Alam has written 14 books, 3 booklets, several leaflets and a series of popular articles on different aspects of fish processing, marketing and resource utilization, quality assurance of fish products, packaging of fish and fishery products, community empowerment and coastal fisheries resource management, many of them are published by the FAO.

WorldFish is researching the policy and management changes necessary to improve resilience and productivity of small-scale fisheries. The primary target beneficiaries of this research program are fishery-dependent households and communities, and the traders and consumers of the fish they produce.

BANGLADESH FISHERIES RESEARCH INSTITUTE. Introduction. The fish and fisheries are integral part of the culture and heritage of Bangladesh. The sector is quite significant in the country as it offers an important source of earning livelihood, foreign exchange and food supply.

Because of its climate and vast water resources, Bangladesh is highly suitable for fisheries. Unsurprisingly, fisheries supply the majority of animal protein (60%) in Bangladeshi diets and provide employment to over 17 million people.

In the past 10 years, fish production in Bangladesh increased % annually, mainly because of aquaculture, which grew % per year. The Fisheries Sector represents one of the most productive and dynamic sectors in Bangladesh. In the early 70s the fisheries sector was dominated by small scale enterprises operating in the capture fishery sector.

Since then aquaculture has become the key player in providing fish for the urban consumer and shrimp for the export market.
