Diversity of selective and non-selective fishing gear and their impact on inland fisheries in Bangladesh

  • Ghulam Kibria, M.
  • Ahmed, K.K.U.
Registered author(s):

    The paper describes the wide range of traditional fishing gear used by subsistence and professional fishers in the inland waters in Bangladesh as well as their impact on the fisheries and the environment. The negative impacts indicate the need for regulation of specific types of fishing gear at particular times of the year. An awareness/training program should be extended to the fishermen to create awareness of the long-term effects of their fishing practices and to impart knowledge of fishing laws.
