The Jigawa State Government has taken a significant step to boost fish production in the region by stocking Birninkudu Dam with 18,000 fingerlings.

According to Mr Sulaiman Aminu, the Public Relations Officer of the Jigawa Ministry of Agriculture, the fingerlings were released into the dam as part of Governor Umar Namadi’s 12-point agenda to elevate the living standards of citizens.

This initiative aims to stimulate fishing activities and follows a similar successful effort in 2016 when the state government stocked Warwade Dam in Dutse Local Government with 300,000 assorted fingerlings.

Additionally, he said the government procured and distributed fishing gears such as nets, hooks, containers, and canoes to support local fishermen in the community.

NAN recalls that in 2016, the state government stocked Warwade Dam in Dutse Local Government with 300,000 assorted fingerlings.

Also, fishing gears such as nets, hooks, fishing containers and canoes were also procured and distributed to fishermen in the community. (NAN) (www.nannews.ng)
