Twantay to introduce eel hatchery farming for fishermen

Eels seen arranging for sales in the domestic market.

According to the Myanmar Fisheries Federation (Yangon Region), the distribution of eel breeding technique to fishermen in Twantay Township, Yangon Region, will be carried out starting in May.
U Than Zaw Htun, Chief Executive of the Myanmar Fishery Federation (Yangon Region), said that they would distribute eel farming technology using Vietnamese technology to fish farmers and rice farmers who want to raise eel in their own way so as to expand the eel market, which dominates the domestic and foreign markets.
“Starting in May, eel hatchery technology will be distributed to rice farmers and fish farmers in Twantay Township. This technology is Vietnamese, and this eel hatchery breeding method was studied in Viet Nam by the Myanmar Fisheries Federation and was successfully piloted in 2019 in Myanmar. This technology is being distributed,” U Than Zaw Htun said.
The red eel and black eel found in Myanmar are popular Myanmar aquatic products in the Chinese market. Myanmar is trying to acquire eel packaging technology from Viet Nam, and is also working to penetrate the European market.
Eels are found in Rakhine State, Ayeyawady Region, Sagaing Region, Mandalay Region, Mon State and Kayin State. Still, most of the eels are caught in Ayeyawady Region and exported abroad. — ASH/KZL
