Visited fisheries department an hour ago. Most of the officers on charges are on strike for the demand of Telangana state and was told to come later. But when I told them that I come for important work for the conservation of murrels on behalf of Pune based organisation, then they reacted positively asked to give them my contact and they will let me know when the business is back.

thanks Arish.. i would require you to get the contact names and numbers of some of the decision makers there and the cost per piece of the murrel fingerlings. also now that you have told them what you have mentioned above.. dont speak too much more.. im sure (them being govt guys..) they are on the lookout to make some extra cash on the side. most guys like like any kind of project .. gives them opportunity to try some money making stunts.. all you need to talk about is that the rate of the fingerlings the availability and the contact details and names..(tell them the concerned person will contact them) pass it on to me and i''ll take it from there .. your assistance is really valuable and i truly thank you for the same..

Ok Hamour your points are noted. Will be careful now. Actually they sell these fingerlings for medical purposes. Murrel fingerlings are considered as medicine for asthma patients and are administered annually in a mass gathering(for more information check this link http://articles.timesofindia.indiatimes ... h-medicine). The man whom I spoke had a very friendly nature but he was not a decision maker and told me he will let me know when the officers on charge of the duties are back into business. Business will be back in 2 or 3 days depending on the situation. Also told that the knowledge of the price and the availability rests with the respective officers.

Hamour sorry to reply late, have been waiting for the call but didn't receive call, so I decided to go today and inquire again personally. The answer was same that the staffs are still on strike. Office is looking deserted as before, then I told him at least you say something about the availability of murrell fingerling and its price but he told he is an accountant and he have no knowledge on it, the knowledge rest with the respective officers on duty. However last week Basharath(another Hyderabadi angler) was planning to go to one of the distant fish market, this market is also known to bring murrell fingerlings in tanks load of water. I requested him to inquire there about the fingerlings, he was kind enough and he looked everywhere in the market and could not find a single stall selling fingerlings. He then inquired with one fisherman, this fisherman directed him to go to Nellore for fingerlings are available there. He also inquired about the price and answer was 2-3rs a piece.

This is the information I bought it for you today. Hope this helps you. The journey in search of murrel fingerlings are still on... :D

Regards
Arish

Thank you very much Arish! project murrel if succesful! will really change the fishing around this place, the only thing is which stretch to breed them as they have a big price and the local fisherman wont think twice before they can remove as many possible.

Regards,

Omesh

in controlled stocking ponds.. about 10 months.. the purpose of the fingerlings are going to be experimental innitially.. the fisheries dept.. here dont stock them.. the only do the RCC mix.. that to substandard i hear .. at times. some lakes these nuts have introduced big head or silver carp .. real stupid move.. .. problem here is that local netters use fine guage nets to fish .. along the banks.. and all sort of fry from diif species are fished out..

only recently i asked a few netters about their catch in at a certain water body.. and they said ther rarely get any murrel.. worth talking about..the best place to find the big ones are around dam walls .. but then one cant .. coz of restricted access. when the water is released ..from time to time .. they along with other fish find themselves in the upper reaches of the overflows .. and the local populace know all to well when wate ris released and are there promptly o get what ever they can.. that being said there still are few spots that produce some results from time to time .but that is hush hush...
