Flood washes away Tk 11.5m fishes in Gaibandha
GAIBANDHA: A huge amount of fishes worth of Tk 11.5 million (1.15 crore) of 336 ponds here have been washed away due to the current flood triggered by hilly waters from the upstream.

Fisheries department sources said many farmers of Sundarganj, Sadar, Fulchhari and Shaghata upazilas released fingerlings of carp species fishes into their ponds to get desired output. 

But, the current flood in the Brahmaputra river basin of the upazilas smashed the hopes and aspiration of the farmers as the carp fishes like rui, katla, mrigel, bata musa and mono-sex telapia have been washed away from their ponds.

M. Shakhawat Hossain, a fish farmer of Gobindipur village under Holdia union of Shaghata upazila, said fishes of different species worth about 0.1 million have been washed away from his pond during the current flood.

Abdud Dayan, district fisheries officer, said carp species fishes worth of Tk 11.5 million have been washed away from 336 ponds due to the flood.

A list of the affected farmers of the upazilas was also sent to the higher authorities concerned for taking necessary measures in this regard, he added.
