PUNJAB ESTABLISHES ASIA’S FIRST FISH LIBRARY IN LAHORE

Punjab’s Department of Fisheries has established Asia’s largest and first-ever fish library in Lahore for people interested in researching fish farming. The library houses more than 50,000 books on fish farming under one roof that provide information on suitable habitats and atmospheres for aquatic life. International researchers frequently visit the library as well. The library administrator stated that it has material on medical research, journals, and international research publications, with new ones added to it every two to three years. He added that the books had been collected after several hectic years despite receiving minimum funds from the government’s development packages. The administration is also working on digitizing the library soon.
