Save Hilsa

The Hilsa - the national fish of Bangladesh - is a very important fish for us. Besides its great taste and flavour, it is also a great source of Omega 3 fatty acid. Large quantities of Hilsa have been seen available in the local markets the last few years.
However, once concern remains that fishermen are often catching Hilsa before they have matured properly. This, despite the government imposing various restrictions.
In order to ensure that this species of fish is not endangered, fishermen should stop catching Hilsa before they have properly matured.
For that, large scale awareness campaigns are badly needed.
