  Ramnabad River is a vital river in the southern Bangladesh in terms of fishing. This survey aimed to assess the fish and fishing gear diversity in the Ramnabad River from March 2013 to February 2014. Fish samples were collected fortnightly from four sampling stations of the Ramnabad River at Patuakhali district in Southern Bangladesh. A total of 64 species of fish under 12 orders and 32 families were recorded during the study period in the Ramnabad River. Perciformes were most leading order constituting 34.38% of the total fish population followed by Siluriformes (21.88%), Cypriniformes (17.19%), Clupeiformes (9.38%), Pleuronectiformes (4.69%), Tetraodontiformes (3.13%), Osteoglossiformes (1.56%), Beloniformes (1.56%), Anguiliformes (1.56%), Pristiformes (1.56%), Rajiformes (1.56%) and Aulopiformes (1.25%). Eight major types of fishing gears were detected to harvest fish in different stations of the Ramnabad River. Major categories of gears include nets, traps and hooks. For fishing purpose, a wide variety of nets such as gill nets, seine nets, lift nets, push nets and cast nets were usually used. The fishing traps were Polo and Bana. For line fishing chip barshi, wheel barshi and longline were used. From this estimation there were indication of low fish species composition and richness in the population of fish in Ramnabad River. For sustainability of these resources, an adequate knowledge of species composition, diversity and relative abundance of its water bodies must be understood. Use of the illegal fishing gear should be prohibited and monitored properly. Therefore, there is need for the conservation and management of the fisheries resources of this water body by relevant agencies. So, the government as well as non-government initiatives also should come forward to consider these cynical impacts.

  Background and Objectives: Fish biodiversity is important for the future sustainability of aquatic resources in Bangladesh. However, stresses due to overfishing, climate change, habitat loss, eutrophication and pollution pose threats to fish biodiversity. This study was designed to investigate the availability of fish species, marketing channel and constraints associated with 5 fish market in order to provide suggestions for efficient management and fish marketing system in Patuakhali district. Materials and Methods: Primary data were collected by using questionnaire interviews, participatory rural appraisals (PRA) and cross-check interviews with key informants from Pirtala, Rajakhali, Angaria, Lebukhali and Pangasius fish markets for 1 year from August, 2015-July, 2016. Results: A total number of 103 fish species belonging 55 freshwater, 37 marine and estuarine and 11 crustacean species were available in these fish market. Highest number (89) of fish species was recorded during the rainy season and lowest number of fish species (26) was recorded in summer season in 5 markets. Among them highest amounts were ilish (32.2%) and lowest amounts were exotic carp (3%). Pirtala bazar fish market represented highest number (95) of fish species where Pangasia (71) represented small number of fish species. Majority farmer/fisherme (50%) were directly sells their fish to the Aratders. Pirtala bazar fish market showed highest price compare to the other fish markets. Likert scale technique was developed to identify inadequate ice facilities as main problem of fish market. Conclusion: Rui, catla, thai pangus, silver carp, ilish, bata, tilapia species were most available in the market whereas species such as kajuli, gutum, tara baim, pabda, sagor rita, rup chanda were rare and chital and foli were very rare in the market due to over fishing and habitat destruction of these species. Enforcement of regulatory measure to protect habitat and reduce over fishing, establishment of ice factory, improved electricity and water supply, construction of cold storage, modern communication system and permanent platform were recommended to mitigate the constraints associated with the fish market.

  Chitra river is an important water body in Southwestern Bangladesh in terms of fish production. Fisheries resources in this river are on the decline due to over exploitation, manmade pollution and inadequate management of inland waters. The present study was conducted to explore the diversity and to check the conservation status of fish fauna in the Chitra river. Fish samples were collected fortnightly from seven sampling stations of the Chitra River at Jessore district in Southwestern Bangladesh during August 2011 to July 2012. A total of 53 species of fish under 10 orders and 23 families were recorded. Cypriniformes were most leading order constituting 33.96% of the total fish population followed by Siluriformes (22.64%), Perciformes (24.53%), Clupeiformes (1.89%), Synbranchiformes (5.66%), Osteoglossiformes (1.89%), Beloniformes (1.89%), Mugiliformes (3.77%), Anguiliformes (1.89%) and Tetraodontiformes (1.89%). Fishes in this river is seriously affected by the various kinds of human development interventions and activities, especially in the areas of agriculture, forestry, fisheries, urbanization, industries, chemicals, minerals, transport and tourism. Estimates from these indices were indication of low fish species composition and richness and unevenness in the population of fish in river Chitra. For sustainability of fishery resources, an adequate knowledge of species composition, diversity and relative abundance of water bodies must be understood and vigorously pursued. Therefore, there is a need for the conservation and sustainable management of the fisheries resources of Chitra water body by relevant agencies.

  Aquaculture is a fast-growing food production sector. However, intensification of aquaculture has led to increasing use of various drugs and chemicals, detrimental to aquatic ecosystems. The present study was carried out to know the existing situation of different aquaculture drugs used in fish and shellfish health management in aquaculture activities. Data was collected through questionnaire interview, personal contact, market survey and Participatory Rural Appraisal (PRA) like Focus Group Discussion (FGD) with fish and shellfish hatchery owners, nursery and culture farmers and retailers of aqua medicine and representatives of pharmaceutical companies. A range of chemicals including antibiotics were found existing in the market. Fish health management and disease treatment were the major areas where majority of such chemicals have been used. Other uses included pond preparation and management, growth promotion and improvement of water quality to enhance pond productivity. Commonly found traditional and new chemicals in health management included geotox, green zeolite, zeolite, zeocare, lime, mega zeo, bio aqua, gastrap, aquanone, zeo-fresh, zeo prime are used for the pond preparation and water quality management. Bio-ox, best oxygen, oxygen plus, oxyflow, oxygold, oxygrow, oxylife, oxymax, oxymore and oxyplus are the available chemicals for increasing oxygen concentration in pond or gher. Acimox(vet) Powder, Bactitab, Chlorsteclin, Cotrim-Vet, Fish cure, Orgacycline-15%, Otetra vet power 50, Oxin WS, Oxysentin 20%, Ranamox, Renamycin and Sulfatrim were antibiotics widely used in the study area. The present study also identified the problems associated with the use of aquaculture drugs which included lack of knowledge regarding use of chemicals, appropriate dose, method of application and indiscriminate use of chemicals in southwestern Bangladesh.
