Professor Kazi Ahsan Habib, the head of the research team, told , “A lot of hilsa is being caught in the country every year. As a result of various initiatives of the government, the production of hilsa has also increased in the last few years.Our hilsa is in great demand not only in the country but also abroad. After packaging it in cans, it is possible to earn a lot of money by exporting this hilsa within the country and abroad. Marginal fishermen will also benefit from this. In the process of canning hilsa fish in SAU, the hilsa bones become soft and blend with the meat. This soft thorn of hilsa will help to eliminate calcium deficiency in the body.

He also said that tuna fish is not so popular in Bangladesh. But in the coastal area, there is a lot of tuna fishing. This fish is sold at a very low price in the market. But canned tuna fish is very popular abroad. After packaging in cans, exporting this fish will generate huge foreign exchange earnings.

Associate researcher of the project Assistant Professor Masud Rana told that the demand for ready-to-eat and ready-to-cook food is increasing worldwide. SAU’s canned process will help meet this demand.

He also said that this process has been done at low cost in such a way that small entrepreneurs can benefit by adopting this process.

It is known that the country’s marginal fish processing entrepreneurs will be trained in this regard. After packaging, the hilsa and tuna fish will be marketed through the marginal entrepreneurs under the supervision of the Department of Fisheries.
