The inserted picture shows a group of fishermen while fishing in Gorgol River “Gorgol Noir” which is an open fishery resource and hence there is no fishing license is required. In order to achieve enough sustainability of fishery resource, the fishery department determines the mesh size of the fishing seines to be not less than 40mm. There is ongoing stock enhancing program whereas fish fingerlings are stocked in the river. In fact, the plan is to establish a fish hatchery in Lakleta for supporting the stock enhancement program.
