ISLAMABAD: Sale of fish has increased manifolds in the twin cities with the advent of winter. Various restaurants in Islamabad offer delicately prepared sumptuous fish.

Fish parties are also sprouting up in the capital, boosting recreation and business activities. Noman Ahmad, a resident of Islamabad who was purchasing fish from Aabpara Market, said, “Fish is vital for human health because it acts like a shield against heart diseases.

The Omega 3 acid available in fish reduces the risk of heart attack and strengthens the immune system.”

Famous spots for purchasing fish in Rawalpindi and Islamabad are Aabpara, F7, Khanna Bridge, Saddar and Raja Bazaar. The demand for fish surges manifold in Pakistan with the arrival of winter season. More and more people are coming into the business of fish farming across the country. However, experts lay down certain conditions for proper fish farming that include soil quality, water availability, topographic characteristics of land and proper drainage channel. They said that the government should patronise this industry as it can play a major role in increasing the GDP. Fish farming is not very expensive to begin with and the average initial capital required for this business is not more than a hundred thousand rupees per acre.
