This paper has brought attention to role of CBFM in creating social capital which improves poor fishers household's income activities, calculated by access to assets, access to credit, and collective actions. It was also investigated how can CBFM project activities improve their non-monitory activity health, education. To compare with CBFM beneficiaries households with non-member's I find that the well-being in trams of income and non-income activities had higher than non-members households. It as also argued that microcredit programmes improve the women empowerment positions and socio-economic conditions. This analysis was based on fieldwork conducted form Tangial district in central north of Bangladesh, 2005 through by household's survey of beneficiaries members of CBFM and without CBFM by semi structure questionnaires. The secondary data collected from official document, & Internets. The study identifies themes that the CBFM project activities improve
