Bangladesh’s seafood industry is a major player in the global market, providing high-quality products to customers all over the world. Bangladesh is ranked third in the world for inland open-water capture production and fifth in the world for aquaculture production. Bangladesh earned 555.51 million US dollars in the fiscal year 2021-2022 by exporting 74042.67 metric tons of fish and fishery products. To highlight such value-added sustainable seafood from Bangladesh an Expo would be great.
Black Tiger Shrimp is a popular seafood in Bangladesh. It is a native species to the Indo-Pacific region, and it is highly valued for its flavor, color, and texture. Black Tiger Shrimp is a major export commodity for Bangladesh and one of the country’s top foreign exchange earners. The Hilsa, Bangladesh’s national fish (also known as the ilish), is renowned for its exceptional flavor and is widely regarded as one of the most delicious fish in South Asia. In fact, it is known in the local language as the “Macher Raja”, which translates to “King of Fish”. Hilsa and Black Tiger Shrimp both have received Geographical Indication Registration Certificates (GI). Moreover, diversified marine and freshwater fish species including crustaceans and eel are the major seafood products from Bangladesh for global consumers.
