Bird flu fear drives demand for fish products

Untitled 13

With reports of avian influenza raising fears about poultry products, demand for dried fish and fish paste is on the rise in central Myanmar, especially in Natogyi Township, a dry zone area of Mandalay Region. Dried fish is sold at K15,000 to K20,000 per viss (1.6 kilos) in the market while pork and chicken are sold at K6,000 per viss. Avian influenza was recently reported at some poultry farms in Sagaing Region.—Htay Myint Maung
