President of Bangladesh Shrimp and Fish Foundation (BSFF) Syed Mahmudul Haque and Managing Director of Hendrix Genetics Aquaculture BV Neil Manchester have signed a multi-year Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) in The Hague to transfer knowledge and innovations for boosting black tiger shrimp production in Bangladesh.

Bangladesh Ambassador to the Netherlands Sheikh Mohammed Belal thanked the Dutch organisations and academics for their eagerness to work with Bangladesh and hoped that with the application of Dutch philosophy - doing more with less -Bangladesh would be able to bring a revolutionary change in its shrimp sector in terms of quality, quantity and sustainability.

Bangladesh’s famous brand black tiger shrimp is highly sought after item in the European chain stores and restaurants where they call it ‘Free Range Chicken’ from the ponds of Bangladesh given its near organic process of production in Bangladesh, said the Bangladesh Embassy in The Hague on Friday.

More than 40 participants from different academic and research institutes, marketing agencies from the Netherlands as well as a high level visiting delegation from Bangladesh, led by Raisul Alam Mondal, Secretary, Ministry of Fisheries and Livestock of Bangladesh, and comprising representatives from the government and business organisation were present.

The objective of the seminar was to promote the shrimp sector of Bangladesh through adopting sustainable aquaculture practices as well as marketing of Bangladeshi shrimp products in the Dutch markets.

Director General, Department of Fisheries of Bangladesh, Abu Sayed Md Rashedul Haque, presented a presentation on “Black Tiger Shrimp of Bangladesh.”
