Summer harvest boosts Rohu fry sales

It is harvesting time for fish farms, and the price of baby Rohu has risen in the fish hatchery market.
Most fish farmers prefer that Rohu continue to breed after their fish farms are harvested. Therefore, Rohu fry sales have climbed.
“Rohu fries sell well this summer. Most fish farmers enjoy breeding Rohu. Some fish farm owners harvest fish in summer, and some harvest them in the monsoon season. There are some who put fries during the summer and some put them during the monsoon season. The price of fish fry is not as good in summer as in the monsoon season. In summer, most fish ponds are harvested, and fries are put again to breed,” said an official from the Aung Htet Kyaw fish hatchery in Kayan township.
In Myanmar, fish farms mainly breed Rohu, Pomfret, Pangas catfish, white Mrigal Carp, Grass carp and Tilapia. In the retail market, Rohu is priced between K9,000 and K10,000 a viss and between K7,000 and K8,000. Rohu weighs 50 ticals in some retail shops.
A total of 70,000 visses of Rohu were exported to the Yangon market from Bogale township, Ayeyawady Region, in December 2023, according to the Bogale fishery market. — Thit Taw/ZS
