Aquaculture is one of the fastest-growing sectors worldwide, and it is no different in Bangladesh. In recent years, aquaculture has expanded and contributed to the socio-economic development of the country. The increasing food and nutrition demand has led to an intensification of aquaculture systems with the help of advanced technology.
It has been reported that chemicals are extensively used by fish farmers in Bangladesh to achieve the current aquaculture productivity in the available land, and to maximize profits. However, the indiscriminate chemical use is a cause of concern as it is known to minimize quality, cause diseases, and in some cases fish kills. Moreover, the concentration of chemicals beyond the permissible limit can cause health hazards to the public and impact the environment.
