An investigation was carried out in Pultakanda fish landing center at Bhairab, Kishoreganj, Bangladesh, to know the availability of fishes and the existing marketing channels and fish trading. The investigation was conducted from March 2013 to May 2014. During the study period, a total of 67 species of finfish and 6 species of crustacean shellfish were identified from the studied market. Three types of fish marketing chain were identified from fishermen to consumers in Pultakanda fish landing center. Most of the fishes came from Jagannathpur, Kalikaprosad, Narayanpur, Bajitpur, Kuliarchar, haor of the Kishoreganj (Itna and Mithamoin), Ashuganj, Nabinagar, Lalpur, Chamragaci, Ajmiriganj, Paharpur, Aganagar, Samaschar, Netrokona, Mitabon, Sunamganj etc. Most of the fishes were supplied to Dhaka city from this landing center. Considerable amount of fish were exported to the India, Singapur, Malaysia, and Mymanmer. Marketing facilities were found to be manifested with a large number of problems. These were higher transportation cost, poor communication, absence of icing facilities, inadequate water supply, poor hygienic and sanitation condition etc. Basic infrastructure such as, clean water supply, sanitary facilities, adequate drainage system, icing, flooring etc. should be ensured for promotion of fish marketing system.Pages: 218-223 | 1094 Views 24 DownloadsDownload Full Article:
