Fishermen of Bangladesh depend on both fishing and crop cultivation for their living. However, most fishermen are primarily dependent on fishing. They use simple and traditional fishing equipment. For fishing in the inland waters the fishermen use non-motorised boats and traditional nets. The only touch of modern technology is the recent use of nylon nets. However, the sea going fishers generally use motorised boats and modern nets for fishing expeditions.
In marketing their daily catch, the fishers prefer spot trading and settlement of payments in cash. Fishers sell fish directly to the consumers or to the intermediary traders who are locally known as nikaris (wandering fish traders) and adatdars (warehouse-owners). In the process of fish marketing, fishermen are interlocked with nikaris or adatdars by a system of dadan (interest-free credit) transactions, where the middlemen exploit fishermen by controlling and manipulating the prices of fish.

you have a lot of nice pictures from daily life, I like to see how people live and work. This scene with the young fisherman in the muddy water is well composed, maybe a bit tight in the framing. The colours are good and the movement through the water is well presented. It would be stronger in the impression if the focus would be more in his face for sharpness.
I like the addition with the informative note describing the economic situation.
Lieben Gruss, Ulf
