World largest fish-related information center to open regional branch in Myanmar
font size    

The Fish Information Services (FIS), known as the world's largest fish-related information center, will open its Southeast Asia branch in Myanmar's Yangon city soon in a bid to render such services in the region, a local weekly reported Thursday.

The setting up of the FIS branch was agreed between the FIS and the Marine Products Export and Import Entrepreneurs Association of Myanmar at the end of last month, the fishery industry circle was quoted by the Khit Myanmar as saying.

FIS has introduced its website online, offering comprehensive and detailed information data for its international fishery entrepreneurs to carry out trading activities, the weekly said.

Meanwhile, Myanmar's new international fisheries trading center, built along the Yangon River, is due to open here later this year to facilitate such activities in the sector.

Myanmar's fishery sector remains as the third largest contributor to the gross domestic product (GDP), taking up about 8 percent of the GDP.

With a long coastline of over 2,800 kilometers and a total area of 500,000 hectares of swamps along the coast, the country has an estimated sustainable yield of marine products at over 1 million tons a year.
