11/19/2005
 

          KHULNA, Nov 18 (BDNEWS): Dried fish, popularly known as 'Shutki' in Bangladesh have a big market abroad due to its availability in greater quantity.
Different types of dried fish including coral, lalpoya, falichand, loittya, rupchanda, churi and sadatania are available in good quantity in Bangladesh market along with lobster, crab and oyster.
Sources said thousands of tonnes of dried fish have been collected from the coastal areas of the country including Khulna, Satkhira, Bagerhat, Pirojpur, Barguna, Bhola, Jhalakathi, Barisal, Patuakhali, Chittagong and Cox's Bazar.
The people of these 11 districts have been directly or indirectly involved in catching fish and drying them. On an average they collect 10,000 tonnes of fresh fish, 36,000 tonnes of shrimps, 3000 tonnes of hilsa and 26 million pieces of Gala in a year, which is more than the demand of the people across the country.
The officials of the Fisheries Department said some 90 per cent of dried fish are processed from fish harvested from the sea. After processing, they yield about five thousand tonnes of dried fish.
Between 1000 and 1500 tonnes are exported abroad after meeting local demand, they added.
It is found that the quantity of dried fish has been increasing for different reasons including the increased catch at sea.
