A fish farming pond is seen in Letpadan Township, Bago Region.

Fisheries notices have been issued to prevent flooding of fish farming ponds and reduce losses as fish are raised in fish farms in various parts of the country for domestic consumption and export.
In order to prevent fish farming ponds from flooding due to excessive rain and river flooding and to reduce losses, it is advised to follow the following steps in aquaculture ponds.
In order to strengthen the pond frames of the fish farming ponds, it is necessary to make sandbags in the low places where the pond frame is thin. If there is a flood, fence it with blue lace pipes to prevent the fish from escaping. In order to prevent water erosion in the fishponds close to the stream, it is advised to fence with sticks and bamboo walls and place sandbags.
Also, fishing nets, boats, and equipment should be prepared in advance to relocate the fish if necessary. It is also essential to keep the fish from escaping when feeding regularly and to carefully check the water outlets of the breeding tank and the places where the water will be crossed.
In order to be aware of special situations in real-time, farmers need to investigate ways to report and prepare in advance. It is recommended that people always listen carefully to news related to emergency weather warnings broadcast by national radio and broadcasting stations. It is also necessary for fish farmers to constantly read news and articles about the weather in local daily newspapers and exchange information with each other.
The Department of Fisheries has informed people to contact the nearest fisheries department and ask for help in case of emergencies due to flooding. — TWA/KZL
