A trader shows a hilsa at the wholesale market on Port Road in Barisal yesterday. As the 22-day ban on hilsa netting ended on Sunday, fishermen caught a huge quantity of hilsa in the Meghna, Arial Kha, Tentulia, Bishkhali and Kalabadar rivers, and brought those to the market. Traders said at least 2,500 maunds of hilsa were sold at the market yesterday. Photo: Sushanta Ghosh
