Bangladesh has become one of the biggest exporters of prawns in the world.

For 30 years, many people in the country’s south have made a lot of money by farming the crustaceans, also known as shrimp in North America.

But while the industry has benefited some, it has come at a cost to many others.

Many non-prawn farmers have been displaced because they can no longer support themselves off their land, which has become contaminated because of the prawn farms!!

This is normal activity in capitalist mode of production, production for profit, bigger capital sucks smaller, and even equivalent ones and kills them for survival against competition by others!

Bangladesh, will boast of increase in export, but the common man, who could eat prawns, at least once a week, now can not dream of it, it is meant for ‘superior people’ of developed nations!
