Conserve fish resources in Myanmar seas

This year, the authorities set three months from April to June as the non-fishery season at the Myanmar seas. Such an activity aims to conserve fish resources in order to continuously extract fish and marine products from the Myanmar seas. Hence, it is important for those persons engaging in the fishery profession to follow the non-fishery season.
A Norwegian research vessel conducted research on Myanmar sea ecological system and fish resources. According to the findings, fish resources in the Myanmar seas are remarkably declining, and it needs to effectively conduct marine conservation in order to avoid unexpected losses of fish resources.
At this juncture, the three-month non-fishery season disallows capturing of fish totally but allows fishery tasks at some per cent. The non-fishery season was set in the 2014-15 financial year at 50 per cent, in the 2015-16 financial year at 10 per cent, in the 2016-17 financial year at 30 per cent and the 2017-19 financial year at 20 per cent.

Declining the fish resources in the Myanmar seas is based on climate change and environmental pollution. Moreover, it depends on undisciplined acts in extreme capturing of fish and shrimps in various ways and means such as blowing up mines, poisoning and using various sizes of fishing nets in any season.

Practically, the fish resources did not have any better conditions. Hence, the offshore trawlers were closed in the 2018-19 financial year, accounting for 100 per cent. In the resumption of the fishery season, the fishery tasks could be done with a larger volume of marine products and quality fish.
Indeed, the non-fishery season was set to conserve fish resources for naturally regenerating themselves and for sustaining the ecological system. Only when fish are not captured in the regeneration period will the fish resources sustain forever. Moreover, relevant officials met owners of offshore and inshore fishery businesses to explain the halting of fishery operations during the set period. As such, all fishery businesspersons are to follow the restrictions for the sake of developing fishery resources.

As such, it is concerned with dropping the percentage of fish resources at the Myanmar seas. As every fisherman knows that they could enjoy the fruits of fishery businesses in capturing a large volume of fish due to the full percentage of avoiding fishery works during the set period. Hence, all fishery businesspersons and local fishery workers are to participate in taking preventive measures in the long run for fish resources to bring benefits to themselves, the State and the people.
