50 maunds of jatka seized from trawler in Barishal

Members of Bangladesh Coast Guard in a drive seized 50 maunds of Jatka (small hilsa ) from a trawler in Kalabadar river under Barishal district early morning.

Fisheries officer Dr Bimal Chandra Das, said acting on a tip-off, a team of Coast Guard from Bhola conducted the drive and seized 50 maunds of Jatka searching a Barishal-bound trawler.

The fish traders, however, managed to flee the scene sensing the presence of the Coast Guard members.

 The seized Jatka were distributed among poor people and different local madrasas and orphanages in the district this morning in the presence of Upazila Nirbahi Officer Mosharraf Hossain, he added.
