Developing Radio Commercial on Safe Fish and Airing on FM Channels
The necessity of food safety including safe fish- Food safety is getting priority due to the adulterated practices at different level of value chain. Preservation, transportation and micro level packaging remains constrains. Increased pressure on population and increased health risk are associated with lack of nutrition both in urban and rural areas. Low cost source of nutrition is obviously fish, vegetables and fruits. Other hand, traditional method of cultivation provides lesser per unit production and hence leave the opportunity of multifold growth.
A lot of threats are impeding fish consumption (subsequently impacting fish producers negatively) including usages of formalin, usages of jelly to increase weight, usages of chemical treated hormones, pesticides and growth promoter in fish production, and question has mounted for quality fish. The same can be said for fruits and vegetables as well. A part from the regular threats in post-harvest, production system is also under serious threats of using different harmful elements as fish feed i.e. poultry waste and mixture of harmful elements in the feed. Maintaining hygiene according to standard is a far cry. Overall, future growth and consumption of fish sector is threatened by these constraints.
