Fishermen refraining from fishing to get 40 kg rice per month

The government is going to impose a 65-day ban starting from May 20 to July 23 on fishing in the Bay of Bengal in the interest of the national economy.

Fisheries and Livestock Minister SM Rezaul Karim imparted this information while speaking at an online meeting on enforcing the ban held at the Secretariat, reports UNB.

“Catching all types of saltwater fish has been prohibited during the period. All commercial trawlers have been asked to abide by the ban,” he said.

“During this [ban] period, fishermen refraining from fishing will get 40 kilograms of rice per month,” he informed.

“We want to ensure that more fish is produced, and to make that happen, we need to implement the government’s order strictly,” the minister added.

Saying that no negligence will be allowed in this regard, he urged the officials concerned to steer clear of any misdeed.

“If there is any negligence in discharging duty, it will be dealt with sternly and no one will be spared,” he warned.

Fisheries and Livestock Secretary Rawnak Mahmud, Additional Secretary Shyamol Chandra Karmakar, Joint Secretary Md Toufiqul Arif, representatives of Bangladesh Navy, Armed Forces, Bangladesh Police and Bangladesh Coast Guard, DIG of River Police, DG of Fisheries Department Kazi Shams Afroz, and the divisional commissioners of Barisal, Chittagong and Khulna were among others present at the meeting.
