Myanmar exported over 3,000 metric tons of shrimp to global markets in the past four months, according to the Department of Fisheries.
Myanmar’s seaborne shrimp export was estimated at 2,859.032 tonnes worth US$10.847 million and border saw exports of 353.297 tonnes worth $1.866 million between 1 April and 31 July of the current financial year 2023-2024, totalling 3,212.329 tonnes worth $12. 713 million.
The shrimp exports dropped compared to that of the year-ago period. Myanmar sent 4,545.728 tonnes worth $16.556 million by sea and 340.924 tonnes worth $1.555 tonnes via border in the corresponding period last FY, reaching 4,886.652 tonnes worth $18.111 million.
Myanmar delivers fishery products including fish and shrimps to neighbouring countries (China and Thailand) through Muse, Myawady, Kawthoung, Myeik, Mawtaung, Maungtaw and Kenglek border posts. Myanmar ships them to Japan and European countries via maritime trade.
There are 480,000 fish and shrimp farms and over 120 cold storage facilities across Myanmar, fish breeders said.
Myanmar’s fishery export has returned to normalcy. Yet the export volume still declines compared to that in the pre-coronavirus period. — TWA/EM
