Video—A Sad Story about Shrimp Farming

 

This six-minute video tells the sad story of salt water intrusion and the spread of large-scale shrimp farming on small-scale traditional farmers in southwestern Bangladesh.  With English subtitles and high-definition video, it also provides a wonderful look at the peasants, their lives and the topography in the region.  Kumnur Islam, the owner of one of the large-scale shrimp farms is profiled, and there are many shots of large-scale shrimp farms.
