Abstract: Bangladesh is posing a serious threat to the sustainability of marine fisheries. Lack of recent stock assessment program, the influence of climate change and pollution on the valuable nursery habitats such as mangroves and estuaries have considerable impacts on marine fisheries productivity. If overfishing continues at the current alarming trend, then time will come when important fishery will reach a point of no return jeopardizing the whole industry. Therefore, the present status of marine fisheries resources and its future potential need to be framed out to establish a comprehensive plan for sustainable conservation, management, and exploitation of these resources.
