In this episode, Kiran travels the length of Bangladesh, one of the world’s top fish producing nations, where he discovers the country’s fishing industry is as diverse as it can be dangerous and witnesses the amazing sight of fresh prawns being caught by specially trained otters. His journey begins in the northern rural farming district of Mymensingh. Here he discovers a life-threatening way of transporting baby fish, or fingerlings, to market, via the open roof of an inter-city train. He joins scores of Bangladeshi fish porters on their daily commute, riding the railway into Dhaka while balancing 20kg pots of fingerlings atop the roofs of the speeding rush-hour trains. From there, Kiran embarks on a mammoth journey by rail, car and boat to one of the world’s largest mangrove swamps, the Sundarbans.
