As we're Bengalis, we are fond of fish. So, from my childhood I was very curious about different types of fishes. I was watching my mom cutting any fish. As a result, an interest of dissecting fish and knowing about its different parts strike in my head. I have also built interest on keeping ornamental fish. So, I choose fishery.
It is Professional Fishery course. It takes four years to complete bachelor's degree, then another two years for master's degree. One can enter to this college through their marks obtained in Physics, Chemistry, Biology, and English on board exam as state student.
