Daw Toe Nandar Tin, Vice-President of the Myanmar Fisheries Federation (MFF), announced that the MFF is conducting research and tests to produce eels in Myanmar commercially using technology from Viet Nam. If successful, the methods will be shared with local farmers.
She stated, “World Fish provides technical assistance for Tilapia production. We noticed a significant presence of eels during our visit to a Tilapia production site. Upon inquiry with the farmers about their interest in producing eels using Vietnamese technology, they responded positively. Consequently, this technology is being applied to eel production. The MFF had previously employed this technology, yielding satisfactory results.”
The testing of eel production with Vietnamese technology began in 2018 but was temporarily halted during COVID-19. The programme resumed in 2022 at fish farming sites in Yangon and Ayeyawady regions.
In eel production sites using Vietnamese technology, cost-saving measures are implemented as eels are sourced from paddy fields, and only snail are used for their feed. Eels are abundant in Yangon, Bago, Ayeyawady, Sagaing regions, and Mon State and are mainly exported to China. — ASH/TMT
