Importance: Bangladesh fish farming sector contributes significantly to the national economy. But this
industry is in global attention due to some key reasons. The welfare of labour in the fish farming sector has
neglected because employers do not follow the existing labour law. They are abused in many aspects. As a
result, its affected workers' mind, decrease work efficiency and reduce export market which has led to the loss
of revenue in Bangladesh.
Research Question: Thus, research question has set: a) Does application of labour law influence the fish
farming workers' mind? b) To what extent have the Bangladesh labour law been executed in the fish farming
industry in Bangladesh?
Methodology: The 132 data collected through a structured questionnaire from fish farming workers in
different fish cultivating farms in three specific areas in Bangladesh. A convenient sampling technique has
followed for collecting data. Focus Group Discussion (FGD) conducted to capture the necessary qualitative
information about workers perception which has not covered by the structured questionnaire. The survey
conducted between June 2017 to July 2017.
Findings & Suggestion: The survey shows that the labour law scarcely follows in the fish farming industry
in Bangladesh. Workers of the fish farming industries opined that they are not satisfied due to non-compliance
with labour law in the fish farming sector in Bangladesh. However, they opine that they will be satisfied if the
labour law is applied in the fish farming industry in Bangladesh. Therefore, study suggests to employers and
different stakeholders to follow the existing labour law. The study also suggests to the government to develop
monitoring cell, to compel employers and stakeholders to follow the labour law in Bangladesh.
