The Department of Fisheries under the Ministry of Agriculture, Livestock, and Irrigation has issued a warning to prevent flooding of fish and shrimp farms and reduce losses caused by heavy rains and inundation of rivers.
The warning said that sandbags should be placed in areas where the banks of fish farms are thin and low to strengthen them, nets should be fenced around to prevent fish from escaping in case of flooding, and measures should be taken to prevent erosion of fish farms close to water currents.
In addition, it is also required to prepare fishing nets, boats, and equipment in advance to relocate the fish if necessary and move fish feed and equipment to a safe place.
Likewise, it is essential to keep the fish from escaping through regular feeding, to always check the water outlets and overflow areas of the farms and to constantly listen to emergency weather alerts.
In the event of an emergency due to flooding, it is necessary to contact the nearest fisheries department and ask for help, according to the announcement. — TWA/CT
