Gurudev Haldar, a local fisherman, caught an 18.2 kg Catla fish from the Padma River at Daulatdia Ferry Ghat in Goalanda upazila early Saturday to change his fortune.

The lucky fisherman said he along with his associates went out on a fishing mission in the river before dawn.

Gurudev and his men caught the giant Catla at one point and later auctioned it off for a large sum.

Mohammad Chandu Mollah, a local fish trader, bought the fish at Tk25,480, Tk1,400 per kg, in the auction at a local fish market adjacent to Daulatdia Ghat in the morning. Now Chandu expects to sell it at Tk1,500 per kg.

About the river condition and availability of fish, Chandu said: “The river water has started receding with the weakening of monsoon, and many fish like Catla, Rui, Boal, Pangas are now found in abundance.”

“Fishermen from Manikganj and Pabna districts are having a good time with amazing catches,” he added.

Md Rezaul Sharif, a fishery official of Goalanda, said huge fish are expected to be netted now as Padma water keeps receding.
