Bangladesh is widely recognized as one of the most suitable countries in the world for shrimp farming because of its favorable resources and agro-climatic conditions. A subtropical monsoon climate, low-lying agricultural land, saltwater availability, and a large shallow area provide ideal conditions for shrimp production. In the past three decades, the development of shrimp farming has attracted considerable attention because of its high export potential. Frozen and Live Fish export is the eighth largest export item of our country, which earned about $532.94 million in the year 2021-22, is about 0.52% of total export, and contributed 0.116% to the national GDP.
