Myanmar’s fishery exports moved up to over US$54.98 million as of 3 May in the current financial year 2024-2025, beginning 1 April, the Ministry of Commerce’s statistics showed.
The figures reflected an increase of $25.5 million compared to $29.46 million recorded in the corresponding period of the FY 2023-2024.
At present, fishery exports are regularly occurring, yet the volume of fishery exports is still lower than that recorded in the pre-pandemic period.
Myanmar sends fisheries such as fish, crab, and shrimp to neighbouring countries (China and Thailand) through Muse, Myawady, Kawthoung, Myeik, Sittway and Maungtaw border posts. They are shipped to Japan, European countries, China, Thailand, and other regional countries via maritime channels.
More than 20 fish species, including hilsa, rohu, catfish, and seabass are delivered to foreign markets, according to the Myanmar Fisheries Federation.
Myanmar delivers fisheries to over 40 countries, and the leading importer of Myanmar’s fisheries is Thailand, followed by China. — NN/EM
