  Sylhet-Sunamgonj region is one of the most important freshwater fish producing areas of Bangladesh. A huge amount of fish is produced in these regions to support local consumption and also export to other countries. The caught fish are not adequately taken care off during harvest and post-harvest handling. So, a serious loss in wet fish occurs. The present study has determined the extent of quality loss in fish value chain in Sylhet-Sunamgonj regions with a view to minimize such losses. Extent of loss in wet fish quality at the stakeholder level during transportation like fish farmer, arotder (commission agent), wholesaler and retailer was assessed. Two big landing centers, one big wholesale markets and one retail market of Sylhet-Sunamgonj region were studied. Data were collected through questionnaire interview along with traveling throughout the distribution channel. A sensory method was used to assess the quality of wet fish. Insufficient icing, mishandling of fish, non-insulated carrying container and lack of awareness were found to be the reasons for the quick quality loss of wet fish in these regions.
