A man who leads his life by catching and selling fishes is known as fisherman. Generally he lives in the rural area near the rivers, the big canals, marshy lands and the seas. He is hard working and painstaking. He uses nets and boats in fishing. Some fishermen have nets but no boats. Some who have boats and nets employ the boat less ones and they work in a group. A fisherman is always at work. While at home he repairs his boats or nets and he paints his boats or dyes his nets. He catches fish in the seas, rivers, and bells. His women-folk make new nets; his children dry fishes in the sun and sell them in the market. He works hard all day and night. The life of a fisherman is very risky and challenging because there may have storms and cyclones at any time. Some fishermen go to fish at night; some go to fish in the deep water or in the sea from home for many days. When he catches a lot of fish, his joy knows no bounds. After all a fisherman does much good to us by supplying fishes. So, a fisherman plays an important role like a farmer. In spite of being hard working and playing an important role in the economic sector in our nation he is considered as a lower class people and he is not given no respect or honor. Government should take some steps for the development of minimum standard of their livelihood and we should change our outlook towards them. They should be given much opportunity to lead a happy and comfortable life.
