Local and foreign investors are being invited to operate salt-water prawn farms and breeding sites in a more than 2,000 hectare zone Yangon’s Kyaungtang township, officials said.
Prawn farms and breeding sites in the zone were suspended more than one year ago due to their lack of success and new investment is being sought from experienced prawn farmers, the officials said.
One high ranking official from the Fisheries Department said the prawn breeding and farm zone would be made more professional. Officials from the regional government as well as the Fisheries Department were working together to re-launch the zone, he said.
Crab, including soft shell crab, is also being farmed in the township. Prawn is raised primarily for the domestic market with only a small amount exported.
