The government imposes a 3-month ban on fishing, marketing and transportation of fish from Kaptai Lake every year

The local administration has extended the ongoing ban on fishing in Kaptai Lake till August 31.

Commander of the Bangladesh Navy and Marketing Manager of the Bangladesh Fisheries Development Corporation (BFDC) Touhidul Islam said that the ban on netting, marketing and transportation of fish from Kaptai Lake has been extended by 10 days.

Earlier, the BFDC had extended the ban on fishing twice. The latest decision has been taken to increase the safe breeding of fish and water level in the lake, said Touhidul.

According to the new decision, fishermen can catch fish from September 1.

On April 26, the local administration imposed a three-month ban on netting, marketing and transportation of fish from Kaptai Lake effective from May 1.

The ban was imposed to ensure the natural breeding of carp fish. The ban was subsequently extended.

Every year, the government imposes a three-month ban on fishing, marketing and transportation of fish from Kaptai Lake aiming to ensure the natural breeding of fish.
