College student meets educational expenses by farming ornamental fish

OUR CORRESPONDENT, Jhenidah
College student meets educational expenses by farming ornamental fish

A college student in Kaliganj upazila has been rearing ornamanetal fish of uncommon colours with the assistance of the fisheries department.

Sehab Uddin, 22, is studying in City College of Jashore. His father, a poor farmer, was facing financial constraints to manage the educational expenses of his three children. So, Sehab decided to farm ornamental fish of many colours in mini waterbodies to contribute something to the family.

Sehab said he had purchased male and female species of coloured fish for Tk. 18,500 in February this year. The fish were collected from a renowned fish vendor, Saiful Islam, who taught him some techniques of coloured fish farming.

Sehab also said he released the fish in mini-tanks and they spawned eggs within two months. He transferred the fries into the deep water of ponds for smoother growth. After a while, they were coveted by people interested in filling their aquariums. He sold the coloured fish for Tk. 18,000 in the past few weeks.

He expressed hope that he would be able to earn more money by selling the rest of the fish within a few months.

The feed for the fish is easily available in stores. He spends Tk. 25–30 a day for fish feed.

Sehab also said it was easy to farm ornamental fish by investing only a few thousand taka. He expressed optimism that he would be able to expand the farming for better activities.

Upazila fisheries officer (UFO) in Kaliganj, Saidur Reza Muhammad Selin, said the fisheries department had been providing technical assistance to Sehab. This type of fisg farming might strengthen the socio-economic situation in society, he added.
