BHOLA: Fishermen in Charfasson upazila of the district are set to restart fishing hilsa as the 60-day ban on catching, selling, hoarding and transporting of the fish is going to end on Saturday midnight.

The government imposed the ban on March 1 to make the breeding season interruption-free which is going to end this mid night, said upazila fisheries officer Maruf Hossain Minar.

As the ban is about to end, fishermen have become busy hunting for hilsa. Hundred of trawlers are seen anchored on the riverbanks and seashores, reports our local correspondent visiting some fishing villages in the upazila.
