When a tank of trout fish went on wheels for the first time to be delivered within around fifteen kilometers of distance, Mushtaq Ahmad Kana felt like his children were being taken away.
Two years ago, in Ishbar area of Nishat, Kana had turned the fountain in his garden into a pond to rear trout fish. It was the end of the summer season. Kana’s house is at the bottom of Dachigam National Park and the freshwater supply for his fish pond comes from Dagwan Nallah as it flows through the park.
As soon as his fish started growing, Kana started a small business which he named “Trout on Wheels”.
