Fishing resumes in Kaptai Lake after 90-day ban

Fishing resumes in Kaptai Lake after 90-day ban

Fishing in Kaptai Lake resumed on Tuesday at the end of a three-month ban imposed by the local administration to boost fish production.

Manager of Bangladesh Fisheries Development Corporation (BFDC) Lieutenant Commander M Touhidul Islam said fishermen went out to catch fish after midnight and returned with their catch at the BFDC ghat around 5am.

BFDC imposed a three-month ban on fishing in the Kaptai Lake from April 30 to allow the fish population to thrive. BFDC has released 30 tonnes of carp variety of fish fry in different parts of the lake during this year’s fishing ban.

Touhidul said they were optimistic about high production this year.

BFDC have set up seven check-posts and six mobile monitoring centres to ensure breeding of fishes and assure that no-one can catch fish during the ban, he said.

Udoyon Barua, a fish trader and general secretary of Rangamati Fisheries Association, said some 22,000 fishermen are dependent on the Kaptai Lake.

The workers and fish traders are passing a busy time since morning, he said.
