The Yangon Region Fishery Department will conduct rohu hatching with the help of Japanese technology, according to a recent report in Myanma Alinn.
The species of short-headed catfish will be added into the Twantay hatchery, in cooperation with Japanese livestock experts.
We have carried out tissue experiments on dead fish and live fish, with the aim to preserve Myanmar-origin fish for a long term,” U Tun Win Myint, head of Yangon Region Fishery Department, told Myanma Alinn.
The fish species will be added into rivers, creeks and fish farming lakes.
The fish larvae produced in the hatcheries will be distributed to commercial and manageable-scale businessmen.
The rohu variety must be preserved, as it has already earned a share in the foreign market, said U Aung Kyaw Kyaw, a fish breeder.
There are 25 state-owned hatcheries from which fish larvae are distributed. —Zar Lin Thu (AMIA)
