INTRODUCTION:
Fish farming (aquaculture) is important to Myanmar’s food security and is developing and
transforming quickly. This study presents findings from a new field survey of the farmed
fish value chain that is more detailed and broader than any previous study conducted in
Myanmar. Many of our findings are at odds with what we perceive as conventional wisdom
about fish farming in Myanmar. The findings have important policy implications to unlock
the sector’s full growth potential and food security contributions
