Stop Electric Fishing

I heard about killing of fish through electric shocks but never saw it live.Today I observed this killing for the first time in Soan River near our new house.They are killing all sizes of fishes with the help of rods supplying electricity through Generator.I felt pity on small fishes and I requested them to leave these small fishes but they refused.

They allowed me to take photos but didn’t free the small creature of God.These people are from Swabi and electrical fishing is their hobby.They told me that this small long fish “BAALM” is quite expensive.

They were doing this near to main Islamabad highway.No one is stopping them despite of DHA on one side and River Garden on other side of a river.

Where is fishery department ? Why every one is free to do anything in our country according to their levels ?
