The Myanmar Fisheries Federation revealed a plan to export value-added river catfish products.
Dr Toe Nandar Tin, vice president of the federation, said: “We’ll source the fish from the Ayeyawady Integrated Food Industry Complex in Pantanaw Township, Ayeyawady Region. The primary foreign market is China but we’ll also expand to Russia, Europe and Saudi Arabia.”
The products include fish fillet, fish meal and fish sausage.
The industry complex processes 30,000 to 50,000 visses of fish daily based on the order from dried fish manufacturers. It is part of the larger fish farming project.
The federation initiated the project in 2019 on 1,000 acres of land. The first phase of the project encompasses 300 acres and includes a fish-pellet factory and cold storage.
The first of the three phases of the project has concluded. Upon full completion, the complex holds the potential to process 1,000 tonnes of marine products daily, positioning itself as the largest fish farm in Southeast Asia. — ASH/NT
