The SFDC will also experiment with two new varieties of fishes — Groupers and Indian Pompano — that they have cultivated in the last few months. The Indian Pompano, which belongs to the fast-growing Carangid family, has a great demand in Andhra Pradesh especially due to its good meat quality and nutritious value. It tastes more or less same as the Pomfret variety but will be available at a cheaper rate.The SFDC will set up stalls at the premises of 23 Durga Pujas in the city and offer a plethora of fish items. The Singhi Park, Hazra Park, Kalighat Milan Sangha, Hindustan Park in south Kolkata while Jagat Mukherjee Park, Sovabazar, Tala Sarbojonin, Nalin Sarkar Street will be some of the spots for SFDC’s puja stalls.last_img
