The agriculture system of the country depends on enough supply of water. The rivers supply us with water. The rivers of the country also provide us with a rich variety of fish. We get fish from the rivers around the year. The occupation of a huge number of people in this country is fishing. They earn their living by catching fish in the rivers and selling it on the markets. Every year Bangladesh exports a huge amount of fish to foreign countries and earns a lot of foreign currency. Besides, many of our cities, markets and trade centres are situated on the rivers. The rivers play a vital role in the Business and economy of the country. River water is also used for generating electricity.
