The legal background to community based fisheries management in Bangladesh
- This booklet, produced as an output from the Community Based Fisheries Management Project - 2nd Phase (CBFM-2), aims to summarise the legal knowledge and experiences built up and challenges faced during the five years of CBFM-2 implementation. The project has established community control over 116 water bodies, spread over 48 Upazilas (sub-district) in 22 districts in Bangladesh. With 130 Community Based Organisations (CBOs), formed under this project, the communities were given the responsibility for management of 116 water bodies - government owned fisheries (jalmohals) and privately owned seasonal water bodies- closed beels , open beels, river sections and floodplains.
