Abstract

A survey was conducted on the different type and size of fishing gears and crafts that were used in Tulsiganga river, Bangladesh. The survey was based on interviews with the local fishermen and secondary data collected from the local fisheries offices. The collected data reported a total of six distinguishing fishing nets with moderate mesh sizes, two hooks using in line fishing along with four non mechanized fishing traps and two pointed spear like gears handled by human directly during harvesting of fish. Captured fishes were classified into species where the nets captured bigger size of fish and traps are common for harvesting the small indigenous species (SIS). Nets were commonly used rather than hooks and traps because of the high price. Uses of fishing gears and crafts were depending on the depth of water. The trap nets were used at the lower water depth in general while the fishing nets were more capable to catch the fishes in the deep water.
