One and a half thousand in a month Tons of Padma Hilsa are entering in the West Bengal.

This time Poya Baro of Bangladesh’s ‘Kubers’! If you cast a net in the Padma, you will only catch the ‘smell’! Kirpana Karnafuli looked up. The muddy waters of the Bhola-Chandpur-Shariatpur rivers are now full of Rupoli grains. And bigger than that, this time Sheikh Hasina’s government is sharing that grain. Before Pujo, about one and a half thousand tons of Padma or Karnafuli hilsa will enter Bengal.


The Teesta has flowed a lot of water for seven long years. Mr. Hamilton’s ‘Hilsa’ has returned to the water diplomacy mission. ‘Give water, give hilsa dimu’- such words have also been heard in the agreement on water sharing agreement. But the tangle did not cut much. The shiny thin hilsa of Padma did not come here either. Last monsoon season, a nominal 500 tons of hilsa entered the state. This time there is a surplus of hilsa in Bangladesh. Hasina’s government has agreed to send a large part of it to West Bengal. In the next one month, about 15 lakh kg of hilsa will be introduced step by step.

The amount is not very low. In that case, will the price of ‘Gandhajhank’ remain in the grasp of mango-Bengali?
However, Syed Anwar Maqsood, secretary of the Fish Importers’ Association and Howrah Wholesale Fish Market, said, “It is not yet possible to say exactly what the price of Padma Hilsa will be.” The price of the fish that came last year was according to the weight. 600 to 750 per kg. It was the wholesale price. This time, the price will depend on the agreement of the importing companies of this country with the exporting companies of Bangladesh. ‘He said, a month has been fixed for the import. However, 14 lakh 50 thousand kg of hilsa will be released within the next one week.


Rupoli grains of rivers and seas are now elusive in Bengal. The rainy season is almost over. Stay away from Ganga or Rupnarayan’s hilsa. Digha’s sea is not catching the ‘smell’. Disappointed diamond Harbor or Cuckoo Island fishermen. As a result, there is a huge gap between supply and demand in the market. Traders say that a few days ago, about 300 tons of hilsa was raised. The exact opposite is true in Bangladesh. From May 20 to July 23, Sheikh Hasina’s government imposed a strict ban on catching hilsa for 75 consecutive days.

The ban was lifted on the night of July 23. After that, there was a rush to catch hilsa in that country. And the news that hilsa is growing more than last few years. As a result, Bangladesh has become a major player in the export trade of Hilsa. Additional importance has been given to West Bengal. Nargis Murshida, Deputy Secretary, Ministry of Commerce, Bangladesh, has instructed the hilsa exporters to send the hilsa in accordance with the 2017-21 export policy. Hilsa is being allowed to be sent till October 10. The guideline also stipulates the amount of fish sold to exporting companies. However, there is no restriction on the size of hilsa. Maybe one to one and a half or two kg. The more weight, the more taste! The countdown to tasting began in Bengal.
