According to the department, the Department of Fisheries earmarked to add 26 million 2-inch fish into the rivers or dams of the Yangon Region this rainy season.
The department adds fish species yearly protect fishery resources, promote fish species, fisheries and fish consumption rate. They added 2.5 million fish into Nga Moe Yeik Dam, the lake in Phaunggyi University, Bant Bway Gone Dam in Kyauktan Township, Bar Lar creek and Hline River in May and June.
Similarly, the officials arrange to add fish at 34 places, including Bar Lar creek, Bawle creek, Hline River, Zee Phyu Gone creek, lake in Taikkyi Township, lake in Htantabin Township, Shwe Kathit creek, Thawun Taw creek, Thaman Gyi lake, Moe Makha creek, Phoo Gyi, Hlawga and Thadu dams.  The government will add 26 million fish into the lakes or dams by using its budget this year.
“The people should avoid using electric-short circuit methods and poison to catch fish. They all need to cooperate with us. The department also arranges to take actions and conduct education programmes. The aim of adding these three fish species is that the Labeo Rohita is an export fish, and they can grow well in natural waters. The remaining two fish species: Common Crap and Barbus fish are also marketable fish and so we add such species every year,” said U Tin Htut, deputy head of region fisheries department.

And, some private fish farms also produce fish yearly.
