The experiment was conducted in Itna Upazila, Kishoreganj from July 2001 to June 2002. It has included survey of waterbodies, implementation of different management policies and affect of aquatic environmental issues on hoar fisheries in Itna Upazila, Kishoreganj. There are 16 hoars in Itna Upzila which were comprising of 83 jalmohals. Three management policies including revenue- based leasing system in 93% area of jalmohal, NFMP in 7% area of jalmohal with fisheries resources development project including sanctuary, have been practiced in Itna. Aquatic environmental degradation by siltation, submersible roads and flood control embankments, deforestation, conversion of water body into agricultural land, use of agro-chemicals and surface water abstraction for boro crop, social and political unwanted influence were creating a great threat to fisheries sustainability. It has been suggested that government should emphasize the sustainable haor fisheries development by implementing community-based management practices as part of an integrated holistic development plan of the haor areas.
