Bangladesh is favored by large coastal and marine water resources with highly productive ecosystem of the world due to her geographical position and prevailing weather factors. Bangladesh is enriched not only in terms of its water areas but also with rich biological diversity including 475 fish and 36 shrimp species. One of the unique features of the coastal areas is the influence of the mangrove forests, which support a high number of fishes and other commercially important aquatic organisms. The biological and ecological values of the Bay of Bengal have been pointed out by many surveys. Marine fishing of Bangladesh is divided into industrial and artisanal sector. According to the progress report on Marine Fisheries Office (published in Sept’2016), 600000 tons marine fish captured in the year of 2014-2015 and 16.28% (approx) captured by 204 (two hundred and four) Industrial Fishing trawler.
