Rare Fish From Odisha Auctioned At Rs 32,000
Bhadrak: Fishermen netted a rare catch in deep sea off Odisha coast near Dhamra Port and it was later auctioned at a whopping Rs 32,000.
The fish of a rare species, Kaibalya, weighed over 150 kg. It was then transported to Kolkata, but it could not be measured because of its heavy weight. A local pharmaceutical firm won the bid and exported it to Kuwait, according to media reports.
However, boat owner Ramesh Nayak said that had the fish been measured, it could have fetched them Rs 1 lakh.
