Bangladeshว Tigers Are Killing Postlarvae Collectors in the Sundarbans

 
Rice farmers in southwest Bangladesh face a bleak future.  Rising sea levels are engulfing their land, destroying their crops and dissolving their homes.  As a result, many small farmers are selling their paddy fields to shrimp farmers.  The trouble is a shrimp farm employs far fewer people per hectare than a paddy farm.  So, many villagers find themselves out of work and without food.  What can they do?  They could go into the nearby Sundarbans, a huge mangrove forest on the India/Bangladesh border and fish for shrimp postlarvae.  Sounds simple enough, but not when you consider that the forest is the home of the Bengal tiger, which is killing shrimp seedstock collectors at an alarming rate.
 
This is what faces women like Farida Khatun, 35, a mother of four whose own husband was killed by a tiger six years ago.  “He went fishing in the Sundarbans with his brothers,” she says.  “When he was pulling the last net up, he told the others to go on ahead.  A tiger came out of the grass and took him away to the forest.  We never found his body.”  Farida says, “My two oldest sons are in the Sundarbans fishing now.  Of course I worry about them, but we have no alternative.  There are no other jobs, and if they didn’t go, we wouldn’t eat.”

Kedah—Poised to Become the Leading Shrimp Farming State

 
Following the turnaround of an ailing Kerpan shrimp farm operated by Blue Archipelago Berhad, Dr. Shahridan Faiez, chief executive officer of Blue Archipelago, said with the completion of an integration program by early 2010, the Kerpan operation would begin to develop contract farming relationships with small-scale shrimp farmers in the state.  Shahridan said the company planned to invest about $14 million to repair and upgrade the farm and transform it into a fully integrated aquaculture operation.
