Young entrepreneur named Talibe son of late Abul Hossein living Faridpur village of the Ishwardi under Pabna district has been self reliant cultivating fish and become employment idol in his locality.

Sources informed, after finishing study he started fish farming instead of running after job in 2012. At first he started his adventure of making luck positive with only two bighas of land received from his father. He named it Juarddar fisheries farm. After success in the first steps he took leas some more abandoned lands around his village and extended his farming area. Now he has 11 Ponds on 46 bighas of lands for fish farming.

It’s learnt that, Talib has established poultry and animal firms and vegetable garden also. Everyday more than 35 workers serve at his firms on daily basis wages. Many people have started fish cultivation like him after his success in the sector.

Talib told the DailyBangladesh, I have come to this profession to meet the needs of the country's lack of unemployment and the demand for protein. Thinking about the country and the people, we have encouraged the unemployed youth to cultivate fish in order to provide nutrients to the people of this country. A little while, but I have been able to benefit the country.”

He also said that, besides the self support, we have to think for the country. Then the country will move forward, the development of the country will be accelerated.

Ishwadi Upazila Senior Fisheries Officer Shakila Jahan said, “The Juarddar fisheries farm of Muladuli area is well arranged. Fish farmer Taleb has made the unemployed youth interested in fish farming; it is a good direction. He did not stop being self-reliant by cultivating fish alone. He helped the unemployed youth to be self-reliant. Fish farming of the Jodadar Fisheries Farm will be struggling to meet the shortage of fish in the country.”
