Question: Write a paragraph on ‘A Fisherman‘ In your paragraph describing the location of his living, fishing equipment, fishing in a stormy night, anxieties of his family, the nature of his livelihood and its importance.

Answer: Fishing is a hard occupation. The man who earns his living by catching and selling fish is a fisherman. A fisherman is a very well-known figure to everyone. Generally, he lives in a small village near a river in the sea. Some of them have only, small nets and no boats. This fisherman need not work in groups. Those who fish with big nets and boat work in groups. A fisherman without their own boats and nets are employed by those who have those necessary things. Fishermen work during the day as well as at night. When they go to caught fish at night and the night is dark, cold and stormy, their families are anxious for their safe return. Fishing in the sea is much more difficult than fishing in the river. They cannot listen to weather warnings. They fail to return to the shore before the weather turns stormy. Sometimes their boats are driven far away from the shore. Some of these boats may even sink. Most fishermen are poor they live hum hand to mouth. But what they do is of great value to our people. They want to change their fate to lead their life happily.

Answer: A fisherman is a person who lives his livelihood by catching and selling fish. He catches fish in rivers, lakes, haors, beels, canals, ponds and in other watery places. Sometimes he catches fish in the deep sea. Then his life is at risk. Sometimes he is hired to catch fish in someone’s ponds or ditches. Then he gets a share of the fish he catches. Apart from catching fish, a fisherman is seen to keep busy with making and repairing his fishing nets and other tools. Sometimes his family members help him in these jobs. Though a fisherman works hard in good and bad weather his condition does not usually improve. Most fishermen cannot afford to buy a boat and costly nets to catch fish in big rivers. So, they hire boats and nets. Then they cannot earn much after paying the hiring cost. For catching fish in big rivers and in the sea, fishermen need to keep a radio or mobile set so that they can know the updated weather forecast. But many fishermen cannot afford to keep these modern things. So sometimes these fishermen lose their lives while catching fish away from the shore. It is very difficult for a fisherman to improve his condition in working alone. For this, he can form a co-operative society. Besides, the government may give them loans to buy nets and boats. A fisherman contributes a lot to the economy of the country. They supply us with fishes. Besides, we earn a huge amount of foreign currency by exporting fish.
