Myanmar crab production down despite strong demand


Myanmar’s crab production has declined this year, despite strong demand on the international market, according to industry sources.
While China and Thailand have traditionally received the bulk of the country’s crab exports, there is strong growth potential in the markets of Japan, South Korea, Vietnam and Europe, the sources said.
Brokerages pay between K3,000 and K6,000 per kilo for crabs bred in Ayeyawady Region’s Pyapon, Dedaye, Bogale, Mawlamyinegyun, Labutta and Ngaputaw townships, a Pyapon Township-based breeder said. Crabs can be caught and bred in Ayeyawady and Taninthayi regions and Mon and Rakhine states year-round.–Aung Win (Pyapon)
