August 15-17, Zhemgang: Smoked fish, one of the oldest forms of preserved food is enjoying new popularity in Zhemgang as the special ingredients are added to increase deliciousness. Smoking fish in Berti was started in 2015 as a trial in traditional way to preserve the surplus harvest of Roudong fish pond with technical support from the Regional Livestock Development Centre (RLDC) Zhemgang and Dzongkhag Livestock Sector (DLS).
While marketing for product, cured fish with smoking has won the consumer taste and there are plentiful demand from the hoteliers and individuals. So to meet demand and inspire farmers in fish farming, DLS supported the construction of smoke house with mechanised smoking chamber for Berti Fishery Community (BFC) to smoke fish in large scale.
