Jatka Conservation Week begins Mar 11

The government is set to observe Jatka Conservation Week 2024 from March 11 to 17.

The decision was taken at a meeting of the National Taskforce Committee on Hilsa Resources Development held at the conference room of the Fisheries Department in the capital on Wednesday (February 28) with Fisheries and Livestock Minister Md Abdur Rahman in the chair.

The move aims at discouraging the fishermen to catch the hilsa fry in order to boost its production.

Like every year, various programmes will be taken on the occasion of Jatka Conservation Week, the minister said.

Fisheries and Livestock Minister Md Abdur Rahman will inaugurate the Jatka Conservation Week 2024 in Chandpur Sadar Upazila on March 11, 2024.
