Fisheries Federation Requests Ban on Building Poultry and Fishing Farm Compound

The Myanmar Fisheries Federation has requested military-appointed Vice President U Myint Swe to ban building poultry farms above fishing farms through legal means in a meeting with the private sector.

The system that uses chicken excretions to feed the fish was highlighted as a concern at the 30th meeting between private companies and vice president-led Private Sector Development Committee.

“It has been banned in China. Why did they move here?” said Daw Toe Nanda Tin, vice chair of the fisheries federation.

Poultry-fish breeding businesses prohibited by law in China since 2010 are now operating in Myanmar, she added. This model increases the possibility of diseases found in digestive system of fish to be transmitted to humans, said Myanmar Aquafeed Association’s chair U Thet Hmu.

Foreigners and local people operate the overwhelming majority – up to 80 percent – of such businesses, according to the information the Myanmar Fisheries Federation submitted to the vice president.

To regulate this kind of system, “no separate law is needed,” said Daw Toe Nanda Tin.
