Pan Crabs - Myitmakha News Agency copy

FISHERY merchants from Rakhine State are reporting that sales of Pan crabs to Thailand is on the rise this month following a recent spike in demand.
The market price of a Pan crab is about K4000 per viss (a viss is approximately 1.6 kilograms). The crab species dwells under sandbanks and are mostly found on Ngamanye Island and in Kyaukpru, Wet Kyun and Pauktaw Townships in Rakhine State.  Thai fish market businesses are showing high demand for the crab because of the rise in consumption of tourists who are staying at hotels in Thailand, it was reported.
