Landlessness, social conflict, insufficient economic support, weak law and order situation, marine robbers, lack of work, insufficient sanitary situation make extreme vulnerable the livelihoods of this area. Maximum people of this area depend on marine resources. Fishing in the sea and fish culture is the main profession of the people. Fishermen are being poor for the decrement trend of fishing and fish farming. More salinity has disrupted the normal situation of agriculture.
