Fish farming  in cages brings boon for many

NARSINGDI: Fish farming in cages, a new form of fish farming, changed the fate of a good number of youths in the district during the last five years, reports BSS. District fisheries officials here said a number of youths in Narsingdi Sadar, Raipura and Monohardi upazilas have been farming Monosex Tilapia fish in the floating cages in Meghna river and its tributaries. Besides some youths in Monohardi upazila have been farming the same fish in the floating cages in Arialkha river during the last five years, they added. Raihan Sarker of Dattapara area in Narsingdi Pourashava first started fish farming in four ca ges in Meghna river in 2011on experimental basis.

After getting better output, he expanded fish farming in cages. Presently he has been farming fish in 150 cages and in every four month, he produced 300 to 400-kg fish from each cage.

Seeing the success of Sarker, many youths of the area started this kind of fish farming. With the assistance of local fisheries department, over 350 youths has been farming fishes in cages at present.
