"We've to improve the lifestyle of fish farmers by increasing facilities for them to develop the fisheries sector further. All will have to work together to strengthen the economy," she said.
Dr Shirin said now Bangladesh is the 4th largest freshwater fish producing country in the world and the country achieved it under the leadership of Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina. The wheels of the national economy need to move faster for giving a boost to fish production as it has great potential in riverine Bangladesh, she said.
