The Emerging ‘Quiet Revolution’ in Myanmar’s Aquaculture Value Chain
World Bank, Washington DC, November 16, 2017
- The domestic market for farmed fish is vibrant and growing, exports relatively unimportant.
- Many smaller commercial farms and nurseries have emerged in last decade.
- Land use restrictions not enforced uniformly, but still hamper small farm development
- Off-farm segments of value chain have grown quickly in step with farms
- Some technological change and diversification in farming
- Aquaculture generates much larger economic spillovers than agriculture; small commercial fish farms generate bigger indirect spillovers than large fish farms
- A Quiet Revolution is emerging Myanmar’s aquaculture value chain, but still has potential to go much further
