Trout fish found dead

Kullu, November 18

Trout fish were found dead at Haripur, near Manali, yesterday. Ashu Gupta, fish farmer, has suffered a loss of Rs 6 lakh.

Officials of the Fisheries Department visited the spot today to assess the situation. They took samples to find out the exact cause of the death.

Gupta said last year, he suffered a loss of Rs 7 lakh in fish farming due to flash floods. He had demanded a relief from the department. Fish farmers say they are not being providing any insurance cover for such losses due to which many have left the profession. — OC
