Kolkata: The State Fisheries Development Corporation (SFDC), under the Bengal Fisheries Department, has started the facility of ordering fish online and through SMS. From Rohu to Katla to Bata to all the favourite fishes of Bengalis, are now available from the comfort of one’s home.
The fishes are delivered the day after being ordered. They are delivered on motorbikes, fitted with freezer units to keep the fishes fresh.
Since the fish are procured directly from the fishery cooperatives under the Fisheries Department, they are available at a price cheaper that in the markets. For now, the service is available in Salt Lake and New Town.
