The Myanmar Fisheries Federation (MFF) is striving for earning the income generated from fisheries export this financial year 2020-2021 to keep up with $715.337 million registered in the previous FY2019-2020.
The value of Myanmar’s aquaculture exports as of 8 August in the current FY dropped dramatically to US$650.36 million, whereas Myanmar exported $715.337 million worth of fishery products to the external market in the corresponding period of last FY. This year’s export from the fisheries sector falls short of $64.501 million to reach the value recorded the last FY. Consequently, MFF is beefing up the exports of both freshwater and saltwater fish to meet the goal.
“The disruption in container shipment wreak havoc on aquaculture export. To tackle this, the State authorities fulfil the requirements, and the One-Stop Service (OSS) was established. Myanma Port Authority processed to facilitate the transportation. The container shipment has become smooth in June. Furthermore, the Provisional Government of Myanmar will make those stakeholders engaged in the fisheries sector get vaccinated for the COVID-19. This move ensures the trade partners for seafood safety,” said Dr Toe Nanda Tin, senior vice-president of MFF.
“Keeping the businesses going and growing is a pivotal role in the country’s economy. All the sectors including agriculture and livestock need to commit this. MFF is conducting the business on a regular basis. Those enterprises in the fisheries sector are truly appreciated. The federation is trying to meet the last year’s export earnings in the last two months of the current FY (August-September),” she added.
Of 175 various aquaculture products, marketable fish products, especially fish, shrimp, eel and crab are primarily exported to foreign markets.
In the past ten months, a monthly income from the fisheries sector is worth $65 million. — Nyein Thu (MNA)/GNLM
