Every year at NJH, everybody looks forward to the time of fishing. Our last season catch totaled almost 600 kilograms of fish. Last year the pond did not dry out for us to clean the place out.
However, this year's drought ensured that the pond got dried out. Unfortunately, the drought also ensured that there was less rains. However, we've been hopeful.
Once the water level was about a meter, we took a decision to put some fingerlings . . . We decided to adhere to the traditional choice of rohu, catla, mrigal, silver carp, common carp and grass carp. We learnt that pangasius (tengra) cannot be put along with these . . .
We put a total of 11 kilograms of fingerlings . . . Snaps of the efforts . . .
|The low water level . . . You can see the bags with the fingerlings inside them . . .|
|Few fish did not survive the journey from Daltonganj to NJH . . .|
Kindly pray for more rains so that these fish will not die off .. .. ..
