About 70% of fish consumed in Nepal is imported from India. However, some fish exports take place from Nepal to India. The inserted picture shows a queue of motorbikes that belong to fish retailors in the rural part of Nepal on their way to nearby market in India. Because of the popularity of “Catla catla” in India, fish retailers in Nepal take catla from Nepal to India where they can get good prices which leads to better farm gate price for catla producers in Nepal.
