Second Regional Consultation on Preparation of Management Plan for Hilsa Fisheries, Chittagong, Bangladesh, 08-09 February 2010.

Hilsa is a popular, commercially valuable fish found in the waters of the Bay of Bengal along Bangladesh, India and Myanmar. Sustainability of the stock is threatened by heavy demand and over-exploitation. The three countries had met in 2008 to chalk out strategies for a management plan for hilsa fisheries within the countries as well as in the region as a whole. The objective of the Second Regional Consultation is to review progress on hilsa management since then and facilitate preparation of national-level plans and a regional level plan. The Regional Consultation will be organized in coordination with the Ministry of Fisheries and Livestock, Government of Bangladesh.
