Fisheries Dept releases hatchlings of small fishes

To save several varieties of small fish, the State Government has taken to releasing their hatchlings across Bengal. One quintal of hatchlings was released by the Fisheries Minister at Sindrani in Bagda block in North 24 Parganas district, in the presence of almost 3,000 fishermen in November.

Among the varieties in danger are morola, kholse, tangra, pnuti, folui, koi, singi, magur, lyatha, chang, etc.

These fishes grow naturally in water bodies like streams and lakes. But over-fishing in places is leading to their depletion. Hence, the department has also started programmes to educate fishermen to not to over-fish and to not to fish during two months of the rainy season to give the time for the fishes to grow.
