    Fisheries play a crucial role in Bangladesh's food supply, food security and economy, supporting millions of fishers and stakeholders along the production chain. Over the past decade, the sector has consistently contributed around four percent to the gross domestic product, with a significant export value of close to USD 638 million, making it the second largest foreign currency earner after the garment industry and employing approximately eleven percent of the population. Up to 60 percent of all animal protein consumed in the country comes from fish, making Bangladesh one of the highest fish consumers globally and emphasizing its importance in the country’s diet and economy. This technical assistance project was implemented as part of a financial agreement between the Government of Bangladesh and the World Bank under the Sustainable Coastal and Marine Fisheries Management Project, supporting the MoFL in enhancing marine fisheries management by introducing catch and effort monitoring systems, as well as an online electronic registration and licensing system.
