Excerpt: Bangladesh has a land area of 144,054 km2 and a population of over 110 million. Land-locked on three sides, it is in the South alone that it has a coastline, the Bay of Bengal washing this southern border. Geographically, Bangladesh lies at the junction of the Indian and Malayan subregions of the Indo-Malayan realm. Most of the country is low-lying, about ten metres above mean sea level. Fish is the most accessible animal protein for the majority of the population. It is, therefore, vital that the aquatic environment be used in a sustainable manner, and that the resource base is not damaged or destroyed. Unfortunately, however, the inland capture fishery is jeopardized by natural and man-made environmental changes as well as by increased pollution from different sources. There are also indications that natural and man-induced transformation, including land-based industrial pollution, from cities as well as coastal areas, is affecting coastal habitats and, probably, the marine environment as a whole. Unfortunately research in this line is meagre. Following the recent world trends, however, the Bangladesh authorities have recently pinpointed environmental concerns and pollution as sensitive problem areas to be redressed on a national level.
