The season’s first consignment of the Bangladesh hilsa arrived in Bengal through the Petrapole land port in three trucks on Monday evening as a pre-Puja gift from the neighbour.

Bangladesh had last week announced its decision to export 1,450 tonnes of hilsa to India, the largest consignment in recent times, lifting its embargo temporarily.

The first consignment of 12 tonnes headed for Calcutta soon after its arrival. “More such consignments will come by October 10,” a member of West Bengal Fish Importers’ Association said.
