President for preventing irregularities in fisheries

BSS, Dhaka
President for preventing 
irregularities in fisheries

President M Abdul Hamid yesterday asked all concerned to prevent all sorts of irregularities in the fisheries and livestock sector strictly to continue its development trend. “All individuals involved in irregularities must be brought to the book .Ensure transparency and accountability at all sphere of your works, including releasing fries into water bodies,” he told a function at Durbar Hall of Bangabhaban marking the weeklong National Fisheries Week-2019 that started on July 17.

Terming the fisheries sector as a huge potential one, President Hamid stressed on playing a responsible role of the government and all fisheries related stakeholders including non-government, voluntary and commercial organisations in availing the optimum opportunities of the sector.

Mentioning fisheries sector’s contribution to generate employment opportunity, he said, “Some negative reports over the use of adulterated fish feeds were published and aired in different media in the recent time. This has put negative impacts on the mind of people.”

The head of the state asked all concerned to remain alert so that a section of fraudulent people cannot do any harm of the potential sector.

Noting that some dishonest businessmen are tarnishing the image of the country and hampering export of the sector, President Hamid said, “But you know fisheries and livestock is a very important sector in country’s export.”

He mentioned that fisheries sector is fulfilling 60 percent demand of animal protein and 11 percent of the entire population of the country depends on this sector for their livelihood.

“We have to inspire mass people to preserve and cultivate fishes of all species to earn profit as well as maintain environmental and geological diversification,” he observed.

The recent media report on pasteurized milk not only caused loss, but also affected marginal farmers and producers.

“When consumers lose interest in a commodity, it not only causes loss in the business but also brings havoc for marginal farmers…We have to bring all culprits involved in irregularities to the legal framework,” the President opined.

Abdul Hamid also laid emphasis on creating awareness among fishermen, fish cultivators, entrepreneurs and other people concerned so that the laws regarding fisheries can be ensured properly.
