Chairman Bangladesh Fish Hospital
It is a great pleasure for me to be the Chairman of Bangladesh Fish Hospital (BFH), Dhaka, Bangladesh. Bangladesh is an agricultural country and a large part of agriculture is occupied by fish farming. We are Bengalis in fish and rice, the existence of Bengalis without fish cannot be imagined. Fish farming is widely practiced in ponds, rivers, canals, beels, haors, baors and other water bodies in Bangladesh. As a result, Bangladesh has become a role model in fish farming in the world. Today Bangladesh is self-sufficient in fish production and millions of people are making a living by engaging in various activities in the fisheries sector. Although fish farming is a very lucrative business, due to lack of experience, diseases, lack of proper guidance and adverse effects of nature, fish farmers often face losses which have a major negative impact on the fisheries sector and the country’s economy.
