Rapid growth in Myanmar’s fish farming industry is supporting higher rural incomes, greater job opportunities, and improved nutrition, health and well-being, according to research by the Centre for Economic and Social Development (CESD), Michigan State University (MSU) and the International Food Policy Research Institute (IFPRI).
Fish farming (aquaculture) is important to Myanmar’s food security and is developing and transforming quickly in Myanmar. This policy brief presents findings from a field survey of the farmed fish value chain. Many of the findings are at odds with what is perceived as conventional wisdom about fish farming in Myanmar.
Some of the research findings from CESD and Michigan State University’s work in Myanmar’s agrifood sector were shared at the annual LIFT forum, held in Nay Pyi Taw on 25-26 November 2014.
