Value chains in aquaculture and fisheries in Bangladesh
Bangladesh is one of the major fish producing and consuming countries in the world. For all population groups in Bangladesh, fish is the primary source not only of animal protein but also of micronutrients. Both capture fisheries and aquaculture play a significant role in fish production and consumption in the country. The rapid growth of aquaculture in Bangladesh has made possible higher per capita fish consumption despite an increasing population. Aquaculture, as a method of fish production, has become more intensified and diversified in response to market demand. In this chapter, we review some of the salient features of this transformation in fish value chains and their implications for livelihood, and we explore future research priorities.
