Ban on catching fishes

Amid the ongoing ban on catching all kinds of fishes in the Padma and Meghna rivers, fishermen pass their time knitting and mending nets while their fishing boats remain anchored on the bank of the Meghna at Chairman Ghat in Hatiya upazila of Noakhali. The government has imposed the ban for two months from March 1 to April 30 to protect fry, especially those of popular fish hilsa. PHOTO: Nurul Amin
