Bangladesh accounts for around 75% of the world's ilish production

Bangladesh has exported 1,875 tons of ilish to India through Benapole land port ahead of Durga Puja, the biggest religious festival of the Hindu community. 

Confirming the matter on Friday, Sharsha upazila Fisheries Officer Abul Hasan said the Commerce Ministry permitted 13 ilish exporters to export 1,875 tons of ilish to India by October 10.

On Thursday, a consignment of 197 tons of hilsa was exported to India. With this, a total of 1,875 tons of ilish have been exported to India ahead of Durga Puja, he added.

Durga Puja is scheduled to begin on October 22 and continue until 26

Although ilish exports have long been halted, Bangladesh used to allow exports of the national fish on a limited scale on Durga Puja as a goodwill gesture. 

In 2019, the government permitted the export of 500 tons of ilish on the eve of the biggest religious festival of the Hindu community. 

On Aug 1, 2012, the government banned the export of the national fish to keep its price affordable in the local market. 

Bangladesh accounts for around 75% of the world's ilish production.
