3848 m -so pour whose father actually runs one of the big nets on the river is actually buying fish here bc she can't get any on the river.
3900 z -this is a 7 striped barb -a beautiful one -endangered -can grow up to 150 lbs so this is just a small one so this is a fish that we would normally release that we would see in the nets and we haven't seen any this year.
M -but there is no prohibition in selling them.
z -no. it is classified as an endangered species but in the areas where we work the fishermen aren't supposed to catch them -if they catch them they need to release them but that is not a nationwide law. So it is not illegal for them to be selling them here, but it is unusual bc we are not seeing them where we are and we used to. These are actually coming from somewhere else. 3949
