Myanmar exports fishery products to more than 40 countries, including the Middle East, with China and Thailand being the main exporters.

A period has been set to ban the capturing, trading, exporting, and stocking of some aquatic animals, and the violation will be prosecuted under the existing law, according to a statement from the Department of Fisheries.
The statement said the stocking period for lobster, shrimp, and mottled eel (Anguilla nebulosa) was set from 1 July to 31 August; from 1 July to 30 September for Rockfish; from 1 May to 31 July for all kinds of freshwater fish; from 1 June to 31 August for sea shrimps. It is not allowed to engage in capturing, trading, exporting, and stocking activities.
The purpose is to increase fish/shrimp production in the freshwater/saltwater areas in the country, prevent the extinction of fish/shrimp species, promote the long-term sustainability of good and pure species and conserve the fish resources.
Notices and directives have been issued annually, setting a period of not fishing during the mating and breeding season of aquatic animals in the Myanmar sea.
Myanmar exports fishery products to more than 40 countries, including the Middle East, with China and Thailand being the main exporters. Until April this year, more than 30,000 tonnes of shrimp were exported, earning US$49.9 million, according to the Department of Fisheries. — TWA/GNLM
