The Community Based Fisheries Management Project , implemented by the Department of Fisheries (DoF), Bangladesh Govt. in partnership with the WorldFish Center and 11 NGOs, attempted to turn back the tide of years of environmental degradation in Bangladesh by conferring the responsibility for looking after inland fisheries resources to those whose lives depend on them i.e. the poor fishers and community people. With funding from DFID , the project managed to establish community control over 116 water bodies covering closed beels, open beels, floodplains and rivers. The project has been implemented through 11 partner NGOs who are working with 23000 direct beneficiaries, spread over 48 Upazilas in 22 districts.
