Abstract: The thesis addresses a number of critical issues pertaining to the nature and extent of capitalist development and technological innovation in open-water fisheries and focuses upon the impacts of these processes on the pre-existing fishing economy of traditional Hindu Jaladas (water-slave) communities of southeastern Bangladesh and explains why capitalist transformation in traditional fishery is highly constrained. The dynamics of change have involved a process of levelling effect followed by differentiation among the Jaladas fisherfolk as well as the entrance of new entrepreneurs and workers in fisheries from different social and religious backgrounds. The study follows an ethnographic approach and its analytical framework draws upon the classical paradigm of capitalist development in the tradition of political economy, while adapting it to the specific context of fisheries. In addition to providing original empirical documentation, the thesis draws out general theoretical inferences about the nature and determinants of the process of capitalist transformation.
