Daily Prompt : Fishing

In response to daily post’s prompt : Fishing

Fishing is an important source of income especially of villagers in Bangladesh. Below is a YouTube video of Hilsa fishing in Bangladesh.

It resembles Shad but is much tastier.




This documentary is about Hilsa fish, which resembles shad fish available in Canada. The only difference between the two is Hilsa fish is tastier than Shad fish.

Steps are taken in Bangladesh to  produce more of this particular fish. Although it has some resemblance with Shad fish, it is way tastier. I was lucky I tasted both kinds.

Hilsa fish is my favorite fish, because it is not available where I live, I sometimes ask our friend in Halifax, to send some Shad for us.

    • Thank you for your comment. Even if you were lucky to
      find one I cannot be sure you’d like it. This particular
      fish has a lot of bones, fine ones medium and large.I was
      able to get the taste and enjoyed eating it despite its numerous
      bones. My brothers disliked it. One has to be a true Bengali
      to be able to handle it. It’s obvious this is what my brothers lacked. 🙂
