Abstract

The Sundarbans forms an ideal mangrove ecosystem, which supports large group of fish, shrimp, edible crab and also supply food and cash to local coastal communities. In Sundarbans mangrove, exploitation of major fish groups like white fish and marketable shrimp has been reduced over the years whereas catch of Scylla serrata shows an increasing trend. The Penaeus monodon post larvae abundance was also declining. Present study suggested that any set of management practice is almost non-existent in Sundarbans Reserve Forest, resulting in serious over-exploitation of all the fish stocks and warrant immediate attention.
