No more egg delicacies in Assam for a few months

Did you know that there was an Act banning sale of egg-bearing fishes? Ministers of Assam really seem to be looking into records and Acts. The Assam Fisheries Act, 1953 prohibits sale of egg-bearing fish during the breeding seasons i.e. between April 1 and July 15 every year. The Act was put in place to ensure that the fish production in the State goes up.

According to an official press release here, Fisheries Minister Nurjamal Sarkar has directed the district and police administrations all over the State to strictly enforce the Act and to take ensure that it is fully implemented. The Minister is of the view that this would lay the foundation for a blue revolution in

And yes the Minister seems to be aware about the lack of awareness about the Act as he has also asked the civil administration to gear up the publicity campaign to make the fishermen in particular and the people in general about the Act banning sale of such fishes.
