Group of fishermen here sold Rare Telia Bhola Fish For Rs 5 Lakh

Jaleswar:5/11/22: A group of fishermen here sold a giant fish for Rs 5 lakh. The incident sounds incredible, but it is a fact the fishermen caught a giant Telia Bhola fish during fishing at Bay of Bengal mouth near Digha in West Bengal.

The fish weighing 35 kg was sold for over Rs 5 lakh. A pharma company based in Kolkata purchased the fish as it bears immense medicinal value.

According to fishermen, this kind of fish usually prefers to move in deep sea. It is rarely caught in sea mouth.

This fish maw can be used to manufacture medicines that save lives. Therefore, a foreign corporation paid a big sum to purchase this giant fish.

For the unversed, fish maw is the dried swim bladders of large fish which are present in the stomach. It is also one of the most expensive body part of the fish. People consume it as an anti-aging healthy food due to its high collagen content. It is also sold abroad for its medicinal purpose.
