Seafood companies have successfully launched commercial breeding of giant sea perch at freshwater fish farms in Nyaungdon Township, Ayeyawady Region.
Operators including United KMK Company started breeding of the fish, also known as barramundi or Asian sea bass, as of March 2015.
“We bred the fish in Myeik at first and conducted test breeding of giant sea perch in the fresh water in Samalauk village, Ayeyawady Region,” United KMK Company manager U Shar Nyo said.
“After 100 days, we successfully caught the fish with set weight and size.
“Giant sea perch can be bred in any region, but breeders need to take care of feeding them at the right times.”
Five entrepreneurs are engaging in fish breeding in Nyaungdon Township. Under the Sustainable Seafood Development Projects, USAID breeds fish in the ponds near Okkan, a northern town in Yangon
