Many countries have set an example in waste management in terms of environmental protection and fish farming. They are using low-cost techniques like removal of waste through drains and other techniques for its reuse.

The use of these technologies began in China and now Bangladesh, Vietnam, Cambodia, Mexico, Uzbekistan and Egypt are also following in their footsteps.

The report says that Egypt in Africa and Bangladesh and Vietnam in Asia have set an example in the field of fish farming. In these countries, more than 50 percent of the protein needs of the people are being met through fish.

When asked, Professor Abdul Wahab of Bangladesh Agricultural University told Prothom Alo that Bangladesh has reached the second position globally in open water fish production due to the initiatives to facilitate hilsa breeding and conserve jatka (small hilsa).

He said that other small and medium sized species of fish found in the haors and beels of the country should also be protected during the breeding season. This will further increase the production of nutritious small fish. Along with this, initiatives will also have to be taken to increase the production and collection of marine fish resources.
