Bangladesh Coast Guard has been honoured with the National Fish Award 2018 for outstanding contributions in the fisheries sector, including its preservation and development.

The force’s Director General Rear Admiral AMMM Aurangzeb Chowdhury received the award from Fisheries and Livestock Minister Narayon Chandra Chanda at a ceremony held in the National Museum in Dhaka on Monday afternoon, according to a press release.
