The 27th “National Fish Week-2019 is being observed across Bangladesh 18-24 July 2019. This special week entirely dedicated to fish is an existing opportunity to raise awareness and encourage individuals and fish farming communities to practice sustainable fish farming, better-manage natural resources while helping prevent the extinction of various species of indigenous fish.
In the present study, digital imaging was used to measure length-frequency data from all major migratory habitats of Hilsa. This investigation appears to be the first to generate information using this technique regarding population dynamics and stock status of Hilsa, and subsequently, a guideline for using this method was developed. This is also the first time that the spatial and temporal size composition of Hilsa in sanctuary, nonsanctuary, and marine habitats were also compared.
This study was conducted to understand the mouth development during different larval stages of T. ilisha, which might assist in their aquaculture such as choosing the most appropriate live food.
This paper describes the current marine fisheries situation in the northeast sector of the Bay of Bengal, ninety percent of which corresponds to Myanmar's EEZ and ten percent to Bangladesh. With the exception of the research carried out by the fisheries research vessel Fridtjof Nansen, the Myanmar sector is largely data deficient due to political reasons.
The present study was undertaken to determine the influence of season, habitat sanctuaries, gear and physico-chemical features on the catches of hilsa shad in Bangladesh waters.
In Bangladesh, many poor fishers struggle to cope during the government-imposed hilsa fishing ban. Boosting the resilience of the communities whose livelihoods depend on hilsa (also known as ilish), the national fish of Bangladesh, is therefore the goal of the USAID-funded Enhanced Coastal Fisheries in Bangladesh (ECOFISH Bangladesh) project. Since 2014, the project has established 280 hilsa conservation groups in 81 villages, and is training women in new livelihood activities such as vegetable gardening.
