Abstract:
Survey method was used to find the effect of shrimp culture on livestock production. The study area is located in the south-western part of Bangladesh in the tidal flood plain near the large mangrove forest, the sundarbans. The average livestock (cattle, goat, sheep, buffalo) number (per farmer), milk production (kg/day/cow), lactation period (day), birth wt. (kg) are significantly higher before shrimp culture compared to after shrimp culture but mortality percentage are significantly higher after shrimp culture compared to before shrimp culture. Livestock population and its overall conditions were better before shrimp culture compared with after shrimp culture. The study has revealed that the production of livestock have been affected following the shrimp farming practices in the study areas. Shrimp farming interacts with the environment and its expansion destroyed whole ground in coastal region.
