Abstract

The shrimp marketing channel included the stakeholders like gher owner, faria, depot, agent and processing plant. Presently the shrimp is considered as the prime exporting item and demands good quality product and satisfactory foreign buyers. Some concerning factors like source of pure water, irregular icing, improper handling and transportation were identified which affected the food safety and quality of the shrimp product. Lower stakeholders like gher owners, farias and depots were less aware about Hazard Analysis & Critical Control Points (HACCP) where as agent and plant complied HACCP system cautiously. In processing plants there was no child labour, low wage was paid to workers and other facilities were partially provided. In ghers wage was paid in terms of cash, food and cloth where as in depots and agents only low rate of cash was paid. Overtime wage was fully absent in the whole marketing channel. In farias and depots some unethical fair trade practices like pushing foreign materials (shagu, juice of ladies finger, water etc.) were observed. In case of depots, agents and processing plants lower grade was counted during the procuring where as higher grade was considered during selling period. Without faria all stakeholders had provision to get license. It was found that gher owners were less interested to get license but higher percentage of agents and factories were found having license from the competent authority.
