Karimganj Resident Nazrul Haque Honored as Best Indian Fish Farmer

In a remarkable achievement, Nazrul Haque, a forward-thinking fish farmer hailing from Karimganj district, has been honored with the prestigious Best Indian Fish Farmer Award. The accolade, bestowed by the National Fisheries Development Board (NFDB) under the Indian Council of Agricultural Research, Hyderabad, was presented during the World Fisheries Day event at Science City in Ahmedabad, Gujarat.

The distinguished occasion saw the presence of Union Minister of State for Fisheries, Animal Husbandry, and Dairying, Parshottam Rupala. Nazrul Haque, a resident of Alekhargul, located approximately 5 kilometers from Badarpur town, received the award in recognition of his outstanding performance as an inland fish farmer. The accolade came with a cash prize of one lakh rupees and a citation.

Choosing the path of fish production immediately after graduating, Nazrul Haque’s proactive approach to economic self-sufficiency through scientific fish farming has earned him not only the award but also the satisfaction of a successful venture. He encourages the younger generation to adopt similar scientific methods for fish production, emphasizing its potential for economic independence.

The establishment of NFDB in 2006 aimed to enhance fish production and productivity across the country, coordinating fishery development in an integrated and holistic manner. Nazrul Haque’s recognition stands as a testament to the impactful contributions of individual farmers towards the broader goal of fostering excellence in the fisheries sector.
