There's nothing fishy about this. They just want you to eat more fish and buy even more fish. Oh, what the fish, the festival does sound like fun.
The National Fisheries Development Board (NFDB), in an attempt at creating awareness among people on fish as a healthy food, is organising a 3-day Indian Fish Festival "INFISH 2010", from 9th to 11th July, at the People's Plaza grounds.
The objective of INFISH 2010 is 2-fold - to promote interest in ornamental fish; and to motivate people to increase consumption by building awareness about fish being a high-protein diet that helps improve the immune system of the body.
The exhibits include ornamental varieties like goldfish, guppies, gouramis, harvanas, chiclits and angelfish; and food varieties like catla, mruga, murrels, pangus, catfish and prawns. Also, technologies available for increased fish production in the country are being showcased to fish farmers.
One of the attractions of the display are seahorses and Vastu fishes. Also, visitors will get to taste a variety of food that include fish kebabs, cutlets, deep-fried fish, prawn and other seafood.
There will also be a fish and prawn cooking competition on 11th July, from 10am onwards.
Entry to the festival is free. Please contact 90522-24335/98851-98757 for further details.
