There will be a ban on catching of all kinds of fish in the rivers of 37 districts during the period

The government has imposed a 22-day ban on catching, selling and transporting ilish in a 7,000-km breeding ground to ensure the safe spawning of this popular fish during its peak breeding period.

The decision was taken at a meeting of the National Task force formed to implement the “Mother ilish protection campaign 2018” held on Sunday with Fisheries and Livestock Minister Narayon Chandra Chanda in the chair, reports UNB citing a PID handout.

The objective of the restriction from October 7 to October 28 is to save mother ilish which lays eggs during the period.

There will be a ban on catching of all kinds of fish in the rivers of 37 districts during the period, the handout said.

At the meeting, the minister urged all, including fishermen and fishermen's associations, to help make the countrywide program a success.
