Assessing chemical and biological product use in aquaculture in Bangladesh

An assessment was made of the current chemical use practices in the aquaculture sector of Bangladesh and the factors that influence them.

The study shows that, despite rapid expansion of commercial aquaculture in Bangladesh, use of chemical and biological products is still relatively low compared to other aquaculture producing countries in Asia.

However, despite this finding, the study identified a large number of compounds that are currently in use, and that require further regulation and evaluation regarding their potential environmental and human health impacts, as already done in most developed countries.
