Fishermen are returning from the sea without catching fish due to the warning signal of the meteorological department. Due to the low pressure in the Bay of Bengal, deep circulation clouds continue to form, the Meteorological Department has issued local warning signal No. 3 on the movement of trawlers in the sea on Friday. The fishermen stopped fishing in the sea and started returning to the ghat after hearing about the warning signal issued by the meteorological department. Most of the trawlers in Cox’s Bazar have already returned to the ghat, said the Trawler Owners Association.
Cox’s Bazar District Fishing Boat Owners’ Association Organizing Secretary Master Mostak Ahmad said that there are about 8,000 small fishing boats in Cox’s Bazar. About 1 lakh fishermen are engaged in it. Fishermen were busy fishing in the sea due to favorable weather conditions. At the same time, on Friday, the Meteorological Department issued a local warning signal No. 3 on the movement of trawlers in the sea. On hearing this news, the fishermen stopped fishing in the sea and started returning to the ghat. Most of the trawlers in Cox’s Bazar have returned to the ghat by 10 pm on Friday. The rest of the trawlers are also expected to return to the wharf by nightfall or Saturday afternoon.
Trawler owners said that earlier on August 18, the meteorological department had issued a warning signal in the sea for the same reason. Meanwhile, on the way back from the sea, at least two boats capsized and 8 fishermen died. After about a week, when the weather conditions return to normal, fishing in the sea resumes.
This is the third time low pressure has been created in the sea in the last one month. Due to low pressure, fishing in the sea was also closed from August 6 to August 15. Trawlers went to the sea again to catch fish from Tuesday, August 16, as the Meteorological Department withdrew the warning signal. But just two days later, due to inclement weather, the Meteorological Department again issued warning signal No. 3 from Thursday, August 18, and the trawlers returned to the wharf without catching any fish. Trawler owners said that in Cox’s Bazar there are 30 to 40 fishermen in each big boat and 5 to 19 fishermen in small boats. Again, there are only 2 fishermen in the non-engined cockpit boat at Daryanagar Ghat in Cox’s Bazar suburb. Among the trawlers, Hilsa net boats fish in the deep Bay of Bengal and Bihindi net boats fish near the coast. The hilsa net boats go fishing in the ocean with a day’s supply and the bihindi net boats with only one day’s supply.
