Publication Description :

An informative study was carried out on 30 shrimp farmers of Shyamnagar upazilla in Satkhira district, situated in the southwestern coastal region of Bangladesh. The study was conducted to evaluate the livelihood analysis of the farmers based on progressive shrimp farming. The findings showed that majority of the respondents (56.67%) were dependent on shrimp farming and others involved in some subsidiary occupations like business, agriculture, service etc. The annual incomes of major shrimp farmers (56.67%) were 50,000-2,00,000 BDT, 23.33% were 2,01,000-5,00,000 BDT and rest 20% were 5,01,000- 20,00,000 BDT, respectively. The findings revealed that livelihoods of all farmers in the study area had improved by practicing extensive shrimp farming. Most of them uplifted their living status by ensuring some housing (50%), drinking (90%), electricity (73.33%), sanitary (56.67%), medical (100%) and banking (73.33%) facilities. In addition, majorities of them also increased their expenses on children’s education (80%), health management (56.67%), and purchasing entertainment equipment (63.33%). In contrast, the expenses on buying cattle or other animals decreased (56.67%) showing their livelihood mainly depends on shrimp farming.
