Hilsa fish, also known as ilish, is popular for its unique flavor, soft texture, and health benefits. The Sundarban Hilsa Festival is a celebration of the cultural heritage of the Sundarbans region in West Bengal. The festival usually takes place in the months of June, July, August, and September every year.The Illish, or Hilsa fish, holds a special place in the hearts and kitchens of Bengalis, especially in Bengal, India. Revered for its distinctive flavor and considered a culinary delicacy, it also carries cultural significance. In local folklore and legends, the Illish fish is often linked with stories of abundance, fertility, and prosperity.

A remarkable aspect of the Illish fish is its seasonal migration. While it primarily resides in the ocean, it ventures towards the estuary during the rainy season, seeking fresh water for breeding. This natural phenomenon of migration has inspired numerous cultural narratives and traditions. Bengalis affectionately refer to the Illish as the “silver harvest of the water.” During the Durga Pujo rituals, offerings of Illish are made to the goddess Durga. Symbolically, the conclusion of the Illish-eating season on Dashami signifies bidding farewell to this cherished dish until the next rainy season. a unique experience with RiverCruise as they host the Ilish Festival from July to September.
