A Field Assistant will ideally participate in surveying the elasmobranch landed in different fish landing stations of Bangladesh
Bangladesh Fisheries Research Institute felt the need of compiling a simple but technical pictorial hand-book for easy identification (also for non-specials and general readers) and knowledge gaining about these fishes. This document comprises of a one year of field study funded by the BOBLME project and previous studies. This book is outcome of this endeavour.
The awardees will be given 'specialized professional development training, mentorship, and networking opportunities specific to their needs as scientists.'
To my knowledge and experience, as I have been documenting in the past three years, this scenario of shark fishing is common to most countries in Southeast Asia region.
