AQD conducts mudcrab training in Myanmar

myanmar AQD scientists Dr. Emilia Quinitio and Dr. Fe Estepa travelled to Yangon to conduct a training on Mudcrab farming and visit a potential site for crab farming from 7 to 11 October at the behest of the GOJ-Trust Fund.

On their first day, the scientists paid a courtesy call on Director General Mr. Khin Maung Aye and Deputy Director-General Mr. Khin Ko Lay of the Department of Fisheries at the Myanmar Federation of Fisheries. The Director expressed his government’s gratitude to the Government of Japan and SEAFDEC for the training course, the first lecture series on mud crab culture to be held in Myanmar.

Recognizing the accomplishments of SEAFDEC in the field of mud crab larval rearing, the Myanmar officials indicated their plan to establish a crab hatchery in their country with the assistance of GOJ and SEAFDEC. They requested another trip for AQD to conduct site selection for the hatchery and hands-on training.

The AQD scientists also met the chairs of the Crab Entrepreneurs Association (Mr. U Knin Oo) and of the Fish Information Services Co. (Mr. Hla Win) and spent the next two days (8-9 October) training 64 participants who represented the private and government sectors. Mr. Hla Win translated some of the vital points in the lectures to Burmese.

The AQD scientists gave an overview of mudcrab industry, and lectured on identification & biology, broodstock management & larval rearing, natural food production, pond preparation, nursery rearing, and grow-out.
