This study determined dry fish production and its value chain system in selected areas of Sunamganj district. A simple random sampling technique was used in selecting the respondents. Data were collected through interview schedule. Small, medium and large size of small indigenous fish species like Veda, Puti, Tengra, Taki, Baim, Escha and Chela were considered for calculation. It appears from the study that processor bought 85% fresh fishes from fishermen directly and after drying fresh fish processor sold most of their product to wholesaler (85%) through aratdar. Wholesaler bought a big portion (90%) from processor through aratdar and sold their product to retailer and consumer and it was 80% and 20%, respectively. Retailers sold the entire dry fish to ultimate consumers and buy 5% from processor 10% from processor through aratdar and 85% from wholesaler. The highest value added in case of Baim large size which were accounted for Tk. 381.97/kg followed by small sized of Escha Tk. 291.23/kg. The value chain actors gained maximum profit by selling of these species due to the highest demand of two species by the local consumer as well the people migrated from Sylhet area to the different country. The lowest value added by intermediaries in case of medium sized Tengra which were calculated Tk. 127.64/kg followed by Chela small size Tk. 129.23/kg. In the study area traders are facing several problems like inadequate capital price instability, lack of transport facilities, inadequate storage facilities, etc.
