According to the Department of Fisheries, fishing permits in the Myanmar sea are granted based on the fishing equipment used during the non-fishing season.
Despite this year’s non-fishing season being set for three months from April to June, fishing permits are being issued in some regions and states due to difficulties presented by the Entrepreneurs’ Associations.
During these three months, fishing is reportedly allowed only in Yangon Region for April, in Taninthayi Region for April and May, and in Ayeyawady Region and Mon State for April, but only with specific types of fishing vessels.
Furthermore, all other offshore fishing vessels must cease operations for three months, from April to June. Only in-shore fishing boats will be permitted to fish, according to the Department of Fisheries.
A total of 3,000 fishing vessels from various regions and states operate in the Myanmar sea. — TWA/TRKM
