The Myanmar Fisheries Federation (MFF) urges fish and shrimp farmers to prepare backup ponds in anticipation of the El Niño phenomenon, which may occur this month.
Farmers are advised to store water in these backup ponds and to be cautious with their water exchange systems. Currently, Myanmar has over 460,000 acres dedicated to freshwater fish, shrimp, and crab farming. Fish farming is the most common, covering more than 2,000 acres for crab farming.
The El Niño phenomenon can lead to extreme weather conditions such as abnormal rainfall, high daytime temperatures, unusual storm patterns, and drought. The livestock sector has been alerted in advance to mitigate potential impacts.
Fish and shrimp farming are primarily concentrated in Ayeyawady, Yangon, and Bago Regions. — TWA/TRKM
