TE24 National Desk:
Monday was not a lucky day for Shafiul Alam, a middle-aged egg collector from the Madarsa area of Chattogram.
Subsequent to working hard from day break to nightfall, he continued to gaze at the Halda waterway till late at night.
He couldn’t accommodate with the way that his catch in the Halda waterway – – the sole favorable place for regular carp in this nation – – didn’t match his assumptions.
Shafiul was in good company. Many egg gatherers like him, who hopefully survive by selling their catch, returned frustrated, ascribing their “misfortune” to absence of downpours and blaze floods in the area this year.
“Monday ended up being a major disillusionment for us. Full moon, elevated tide nothing helped, as our egg assortment was not what we had expected,” another angler told UNB in a gagged voice.
The Halda waterway is the main normal fish favorable place in Bangladesh, where the carp species discharge eggs from April to June pretty much consistently for days of yore.
The gathered eggs are brought forth in the fake mud-made scoop on the riverbank to deliver carp fries for supply to various locales of the country.
“Ideally mother fishes will lay more eggs during the following full moon night,” Shafiul said.
Specialists likewise said that the gatherers could have to hang tight a piece longer for full-scale egg discharge in the Halda waterway this year – – “till the showers trigger glimmer floods”.
The waterway is a truly great favorable place for Ruhi, Mrigel, Katol and Kalbaush species to lay eggs, most authorities on the matter would agree.
“This year, the eggs that have been gathered are really ‘test eggs’ delivered by mother fish. The treated fishes are yet to get a positive climate for full-scale egg discharge as there was insufficient downpours. “As of now, the water nature of the stream is sufficient. No saltiness is there. Thus, the stream water is appropriate for laying eggs. We will simply have to sit tight for downpours currently,” said Chattogram Cantonment Public College instructor Md Shafiqul Islam.
“On the off chance that the circumstances stay good, the mother species might deliver eggs again between May 28 and 31 and June 3-13,” said the master, who went with the egg authorities on Monday.
