Pet fish required to create market

A demand for pet fish is needed to expand Myanmar’s ornamental fish trade, it is learnt from the Myanmar Ornamental Fish Entrepreneurs Association.

“We need a firm market to trade the ornamental fish. The pet fish market is wider in the foreign market, with its own and export market. It would be better if the government ntervenes”, said U Sai, the chairperson of Myanmar Ornamental Fish Entrepreneurs Association.

Most of the ornamental fish keepers are doing it for a hobby or part-time. The prices of ornamental
fish vary depending on the variety. Currently, ornamental fish keepers are dealing with space problems, he added.
There is a marketplace showcasing the many varieties of ornamental fish on Friday mornings at the Yangon Zoological Gardens. The sellers of ornamental fish across the nation come to this place, it is learnt.

There are also small scale pet stores. Sure, the market is required for the pet fish keepers who are working on a commercial scale, said Ko Htein Lin, an ornamental fish keeper from Yankin Township.

The association has already discussed the possible help of the government at a meeting of the Myanmar Fish Federation (MFF) on 25th October.

Myanmar Ornamental Fish Entrepreneurs Association was organized in 2007 by MFF, having over 300 members.
