Role of Fish in Nutrition

Policy Brief

Fish is a crucial part of the Bangladesh diet. A popular local expression, "Mache Bhate Bangali" - “fish and rice make a Bengali” - accurately reflects people’s strong cultural attachment to it. In addition to being a nutrient-rich food, fish is also important commercially and as a source of income for rural households. Traditionally, fish production and consumption have a strong impact on food and nutrition security, poverty alleviation and fostering livelihoods in Bangladesh.
