Hilsha is our national fish. It provides us necessary protein. Hilsha below 23 cm in length is called Jatka. Catching Jatka is illegal image descriptionaccording to the law. But fishermen catch Jhatka indiscriminately thus creating scarcity of Hilsha in peak season.

ASHRAYAN

To rehabilitate the homeless and landless people of the rural area a project named "ASHRAYAN” was launched by the govt in 1996. This was entirely materialized by Bangladesh Army and Bangladesh Navy. Since Bangladesh is a country of low land and it has approx 700 KM of coastline, a good number of people live in the coastal area. Bangladesh Navy took all the initiative to build low-cost houses in the coastal area selected by local govt. In the process of construction of low-cost houses, BN uses its ships, various types of small and medium boats, mechanized country boats, trucks and many other means. The total effort of the navy personnel, local administration and the local people makes the project successful. So far Bangladesh Navy has constructed lots of low-cost houses in the districts of Cox's Bazar, Bandarban, Chittagong, Noakhali, Laxmipur, Bhola, Barishal, Barguna, Patuakhali, etc. At present Bangladesh Navy has been given the responsibility of constructing huge low-cost houses in coastal areas under the project called “ASHRAYAN – 2". So far BN has handed over 2,911 barrack houses by which a total of 23,825 families are benefitted. Presently 216 low-cost barrack houses are under construction which is expected to provide shelters for more 1080 homeless people in near future.
