A ceremony to release fingerlings into Reed Lake was held at the lake’s beach in Reedhorda, a border town in Chin State, in conjunction with a tree-planting event yesterday morning.
The ceremony was organised by the Department of Fisheries and the Department of Forestry, under the leadership of Chin State Minister for Agriculture, Livestock Breeding, Forestry and Mining U Mang Hen Dal, Chin State Minister for Municipality, Electricity and Industry U Soe Htet and Chin State cabinet secretary U Kyaw Soe.
A total of 50,000 fingerlings were released into Reed Lake by the attendees and staff from the Department of Fisheries. The department also released 100,000 fingerlings into the lake during similar ceremonies held in 2017. Later, a tree planting ceremony followed. Approximately 300 saplings, such as cherry and eucalyptus, were planted during the event.
Departmental officials, local authorities and residents were involved in the activity.—Township IPRD/MDN
