Fishery products require health certificate for exporting

FISHERY products will be allowed for export only after receiving a health certificate according to an announcement released by the Ministry of Agriculture, Livestock and Irrigation on Tuesday.

Aquaculture products exported through border trade camps and via sea trade are being checked. Health certificates granted by the Myanmar Fishery Federation are required to prove these products are fit for human consumption.

Those who are found disobeying rules and regulations as prescribed by the Ministry of Agriculture, Livestock and Irrigation will have action taken under existing laws. The export value of fishery products as of first week of July this fiscal year has risen by over US$17 million when compared to the same period last fiscal year with a total value of over US$130 million, it has been learned from the Ministry of Commerce.

Myanmar’s fishery products are mainly exported to China, Thailand, Malaysia and Singapore. Fishery exports earned over US$500 million last fiscal year.
