Fishing in the sea has started again in full swing after 65 days of closure due to government ban. Lakhs of fishermen crossed the rough sea to catch fish after two months of idle time. The ban on fishing was lifted on Saturday midnight as previously announced. There was no movement of fishermen or fish merchants. However, the scene of the fish landing center started to change from morning. As time progressed, the Fisherighat premises became bustling with fishmongers and fishermen. Trawlers loaded with fish arrived at the ghat on the first day of the ban. On Sunday (July 24), 16 and a half tons of fish including 11 tons and 700 kg of hilsa were sold at Cox's Bazar Fish Landing Center. Fishermen said that fishing in the sea was stopped for 65 days. Therefore, they had to live without food. So many people went to fish in the sea from different coasts of Cox's Bazar illegally before the scheduled time of ban was over. They returned to the ghat with various species of fish including Hilsa, Lal Poa, Maitya on the first day of the end of the ban. About 3,000 trawlers went fishing in the sea from Saturday midnight to Sunday evening, the source said. Shafiul Alam, a resident of Nunyarchara and a fisherman of a trawler, said that fishing in the sea was stopped for a long time. So you don't have to go far for fish. Hilsa is caught by casting a net 40-60 km deep in the Bay of Bengal. Hatbazar will be filled with hilsa and other marine fish in four to five days. Cox's Bazar Fishing Boat Owners Association Organizing Secretary Mostak Ahmad said that even before the 65-day ban, fishermen did not see much hilsa on the coast of Cox's Bazar. However, this time there is a possibility of catching big hilsa.
