Crab producers requested the government to ban inflow of crab mainly to Yangon and Muse markets during breeding season, according to yesterday’s report of Myanma Alin.
Crabs are scarce year by year and catching crab during breeding season is prohibited by the government. Nevertheless, steady demand leads the local residents to illegal catch. And so, the government needs to impose ban on main market, said Ko Sanay, a crab businessman from Labutta Township.
All the export channels also need to be forbidden so that no one can trade crab during mating season. The government’s ban on catching crab during its breeding season is not effective as long as there is demand and its market.
Most of the local residents from Labutta Township earn the living by catching the crab. However, they need to avoid crab breeding season for long-term benefit, said the crab businessmen.—Myo Min Paing (AMIA)
