To welcome the Fishery Day of Vietnam (e.g. 1st April), in the morning of 31st March 2009, DARD Sub-department for Capture Fisheries and Protection of Aquatic Resources of Thua Thien Hue Province organized a fish stocking ceremony on Huong River. Three hundred kilograms of local fishes (e.g., common carp, grass carp, mud carp, and Vietnamese silver carp) were released into the river at the site, which is around two kilometers from Thien Mu Pagoda in the upstream commune of Huong Ho, Huong Tra District. These fishes will be a source to regenerate fish stock in Huong river.
The IMOLA project was invited to the ceremony and contributed around 40kg of fish fingerlings for releasing. It is worth noting that the project, together with the organizers, took 60 children of Huong Ho Primary School to this fish releasing ceremony. These children were selected from the sampan village of Tho Khuong. The attendance of the school kids gave another meaning to the ceremony, in that awareness to protect natural resources and the environment is enhanced.
