Myanmar Fisheries Federation and the Department of Fisheries, Mon State, are collaborating to surge the productivity of croaker fish for commercial purposes, according to Secretary U Kyee Ngwe of Myanmar Fisheries Federation. The croaker fish is a highly demanded product in the local fishery market.
Since the croaker fish has a solid market share among domestic consumers, the federation and the department are coordinating to proceed with research on preserving the croaker fish species and upsurging the croaker fish production.
U Kyee Ngwe said, “We will prioritize to have a safe and secure stock of the croaker fish for domestic consumption as the first step since it is highly demanded in the local market. Next, we will expand to get the regional and international market share. We are now collaborating with the Myanmar Fisheries Federation in research on preserving the species and promoting productivity.”
The croaker fish is abundantly caught mainly from October to February, the winter season. Croakers are Demersal fish that live and feed on or near the bottom of water bodies. They are primarily observed in the Ayeyawady Delta and Motama Delta areas. — ASH/TMT
