Govt bans hilsha catching for 22 days
The government has imposed a ban on the catching of hilsha fishes from October 12 to November 2 on a vast area of 7,000 square kilometers along with twenty-seven districts in the country for conservation of mother fishes during its high breeding season. The decision was taken in a meeting on 'mother hilsha saving drive' held at the conference room of the Ministry of Fisheries and Livestock in Dhaka on Sunday. Apart from the hilsha breeding grounds, all the activities including procurement, marketing, buying, selling, transportation and hoarding of hilsha would be stopped for 22 days across the country. Chaired by Fisheries and Livestock Minister Mohammad Sayedul Haq, the meeting was also attended, among others, by Chairman of the Parliamentary Standing Committee on Fisheries and Livestock Ministry Shawkat Ali Badsha, Fisheries and Livestock Secretary M Maksudul Hasan Khan. During the 22-day period, a massive combined operation would be carried out at all the fisheries ghats, warehouses, hat-bazzars and chain-shops across the country. The fisheries department, navy, air force, coast guard, police, river police, RAB, BGB, district and upazila administrations including the Fisheries and Livestock Ministry will implement the ban. The contribution of hilsha to country's total fish production is 11%, the highest as the single species. A total of 5 lakh people are directly involved while 20-25 lakh indirectly with the catch of hilsha fish in the country.
