Fishes

Fishes when this word is mentioned most people immediately relate to ‘taste’ rather than their existence in the wild. For time immemorial, they have been great source of protein to human beings. While richer communities have moved up to commercial fish farming and devouring what comes out of these farms, poorer were still dependent on this resource and gained some access until very recent times. Fish stock has declined in the region and worldwide?affecting the poorer sector of the communities who depended on them. Fish farming is providing alternative to wild caught fish. Same time some commercial farming have used wetland resources indiscriminately for fish farming ultimately threatening the entire wetland ecosystems. It is here where HN starts to take deeper interest and again probes into the problems in search of solutions applicable to the field.
