Help develop fish research farms for improvement of fish species

Article

Researchers focus on conducting fish research at the research lakes for the development of fish resources in the country.
The Fisheries Department identified 11 lakes as research lakes among over 3,000 lakes across the nation in line with the rules that the research lakes must store water not only in summer but in monsoon. Garbage and weeds must be cleaned at lakes with a proper flow of water. It is necessary to prevent capturing of fingerlings from the research lakes, and the cultivable lands around the lake must be free from an overdose of pesticides.
The department allows the operation of research lakes in a three-year term. If the lakes have better maintenance, the authorities will allow the licensees to continue two more years term for operating the research lakes. The government delivers K10 million without interest rate to the licensees as part of assisting in the research works of the department.

In fact, fish is mostly appropriate for public consumption. Government-owned fish research farms and that of local fish farmers need to improve the quality of fish species to be distributed to the people at fair prices for the booming fishery industry with earning the income through the export of fish products.

There are 152 lakes in the Yangon Region, 66 of which are located in Taikkyi Township. Of them, Kalawgyi Garat Lake has been identified as the research lake since April 2020. Hence, the lake was engaged in the preservation of fish species and fingerlings and breeding of pedigree fish species left in the capturing from April to July 2020.
Domestic fish species from the research lakes are to be sent to the fish hatching camps in regions and states free of charge. Again, the hatching camps carry out the research works for the improvement of fish quality and pedigree domestic fish species to be distributed to the local fish farmers.
Primarily, fish species in the research process must emphasize the high growth rate of fish and resilience of climatic conditions. The hatching process of fish species contributes to food sufficiency, researching extinction of domestic fish species and sustainable development of freshwater fishery works.
In order to improve the research of fish species, authorities need to disseminate the information about the fishing lakes to the fish farmers and focus on the degradation of the fishing lake process in the nation.
