Stress laid on fishery development

SILCHAR, April 7: At a meeting held in the conference hall of the Deputy Commissioner of Cachar presided over by ADC Baranya Das and attended by the District Fishery Development Officer and the Chief Executive Officer UC Kalita and representatives of NGOs, after threadbare discussion, it was decided to go for campaign among common people about the need for the increased pisciculture and to adopt various measures for the implementation of fishery preservation rules and regulations.
