Fishing resumes in Kaptai Lake Wednesday after 108-day ban


Fishing in Rangamati's Kaptai Lake will resume Wednesday midnight at the end of a ban of more than three months, 108 days, imposed by the local administration to boost fish production.

The decision was taken at a meeting presided over by Deputy Commissioner (DC) Mohammad Mizanur Rahman Wednesday, UNB reports.

Manager of Bangladesh Fisheries Development Corporation (BFDC) Lieutenant Commander M Touhidul Islam said: "We usually impose a three-month ban on fishing in Kaptai Lake from May 1 to July 31.

All kinds of netting, marketing, preserving, drying and transporting of fish from the lake are banned during the period to allow the fish population to thrive.

This year's three-month ban on netting, marketing and transportation of fish from Kaptai Lake had to be extended till August 16 to help breed and rejuvenate fish stocks as the water level in the freshwater lake did not rise enough.

However, the water in the lake is now slowly rising, Touhidul said.
