to retailers goes onward through a number of intermediaries: traders, broker,
radar, wholesalers, mahajans, and dadondars. On the basis of a sample of 20
traders from the market, the usual amount of the daily turnover of fish in this

the country including Cox’s Bazar, Teknaf, Chittagong, Mohangang, Chandpur,
Barisal, Kuliarchar, Jessor and Satkhira, Khulna, Bicrompur, Mymensingh. The
marine fish supply and freshwater fish supply amount is near about 20% and 80% respectively.
It is estimated that nearly about 15% of fish supplied in markets is Indian
major carps, 10% exotic carps, 5% other carps, 25% hilsa, 10% catfish, 5% snake-heads,
3%live-fish, 5% small indigenous fish, 7%  prawn and shrimp, 5% tilapia and 10%
others including small chingri and marine fishes. Market structure, species

species wise. A great amount of profit is made by all traders in the market in
