The country notably ranks among the top 10 global fish producers. Beyond productivity figures, which have been increasingly questioned, Myanmar encompasses a broad range of aquatic systems, impressive fish biodiversity, and a correspondingly rich cultural diversity. Yet much of that wealth remains either undocumented or not easily accessible.
