According to the Department of Fisheries, floods in Bago Region submerged over 2,000 acres of private fish farms.
Between 8 and 12 October, heavy rainfall caused flooding in several townships in Bago Region, affecting more than 2,000 acres of privately owned fish farms.
Fortunately, the flood spared two fish farms owned by the department in Bago Region (East).
The Department of Fisheries is currently working to stock the affected fish farms with 6.6 million hatchlings at a rate of 3,000 hatchlings per acre.
This year, Yangon Region, Ayeyawady Region, and Bago Region collectively lost over 30,000 acres of fish farms due to flooding, with more than 6,000 acres suffering damage in Yangon Region’s Htantabin and Taikkyi Townships. The estimated financial loss due to the flooding of fish farms exceeds K18,000 million. — TWA/CT
