Project Update: Fishery in Thangpalkot VDC

Fishery project in Sindhupalchowk has taken bigger shape since June. Barbed wire fencing has been laid around the nursery to protect it from
cattle and unnecessary intrusion. The nursery pond, divided into two parts, have been stocked with
fingerlings of Common Carp, Grass Carp, Big Head Carp and Silver Carp.

 Much progress has ensued in the production pond as well. 2,900 fingerlings have recently been restocked in pond. A
new shed and a sorting tank has been constructed at the pond site. The shed will
as a storage room for fish feed,
fishery equipments- all in all, an office for the fishery project while
the sorting tank will be used for conditioning fingerlings.

Locals from the VDC have, too, stepped into fishery. Bir Bahadur Dom, a local farmer, has started fishery in his 2 ropani land. COMMITTED has provided him with subsidy and technical assistance as feasible. Along with Dom, two local farmers, Krishna Shrestha and Ganj Bir Tamang have also started fishery in their ponds. Shrestha has stocked 200 fingerlings in his pond while Tamang has taken a bigger step by stocking 1,960 fingerlings.
