Once the rules were, any one who has fishing net can catch fishes anywhere. Now the rules have changed, where the original fisherman now – can not catch fish everywhere. All the water lands are gone to the hands of leaseholder. The original fishermen locally call name is “KOIBORTHYA” Can do fishing only in 2-3 months during the rainy season but as soon as the water level reduce due to season changes, the rivers, lake, haor are gone to the hands of leaseholder. In these 2-3 months the fishermen passed a hard time in every year, rest of the 6 month they can work for those leaseholders if they want. Many of them have no other alternative so they traveled there with the whole family and made temporary home in some small island of the haor, They exchange their fish for the three-part that is the leaseholder get 70% fish and they will get only 30% of fishes they caught in whole period.
