The local administration in Rangamti has imposed a three-month ban on netting, marketing, and transportation of fish from the Kaptai Lake starting April 20.

The decision was taken yesterday at the office of the Deputy Commissioner in the interest of proper natural reproduction and development of carp fish in the lake.

Rangamati Deputy Commissioner Mohammad Mizanur Rahman issued the notice after a meeting at the DC conference room.

Some 20,000 people who depend on fishing in the district will get food assistance during the ban period through a special Vulnerable Group Feeding card.
