The price of 1 black poya fish is seven and a half lakh rupees. Ahmed, a trawler owner in Leda area of Hnila union in Teknaf upazila, was caught in the trap. At around 11 am on Saturday, the fishing boat at Kayukkhali Ghat in Teknaf Municipality was crowded with a 30 kg black poya, 40 red chai and four marine corals. After that, local fish trader Jamal Hossain showed interest to buy the black poya fish at the price of Tk 25,000 per kg for a total of Tk 7.5 lakh.
As the bargain was not favorable, the other fish would be sold for Rs 70,000 and the black poya fish would be taken to Cox’s Bazar Fishery Ghat in the hope of selling it at a higher price, said Malik Saleh Ahmed. He said his trawler went fishing in the Bay of Bengal three days ago. The fish were caught in the net there on Saturday morning.
