The freshwater mud eel Monopterus cuchia is a tasteful, nutritionally rich and medicinally valuable fish with high export demands which can play a unique role for socio-economic welfare of the area. This fish was rich in nature of Bangladesh, however, the populations of the freshwater eel are declining at an alarming rate from the natural water bodies due to several reasons specially for overfishing while increasing the population of this fish completely depends on natural reproduction, and…
