Kolkata (July 17,2023) : Hilsa fish, the much-awaited delicacy of the Bengalis, has finally made its way back to the markets of Kolkata. However, the price of the fish has soared this year, with a 600-700 gram fish costing around Rs 700-800.

According to fish traders, the price of hilsa has increased due to a number of factors, including a decline in the catch, increased demand, and rising fuel prices. "The price of hilsa has increased by at least 50% this year," said a fish trader in Kolkata. "The main reason for the increase is the decline in the catch. The fish catch has been low this year due to unfavorable weather conditions."

The high price of hilsa has caused concern among consumers, who are worried that they will not be able to afford the fish this year. "The price of hilsa is too high this year," said a housewife in Kolkata. "I am not sure if I will be able to afford it." The high price of hilsa is likely to have a negative impact on the demand for the fish. However, fish traders are hopeful that the price will come down in the coming days.
