Fishpond Farming by Treated Wastewater

In order to disseminate the knowledge that we could support our communities by fishpond farming of healthier and bigger fishes using treated wastewater from Wastewater Treatment Plant of our operation, Grand Royal Group International started the project with 4,800 baby fishes of four different kinds in Fish Hatcheries using the treated wastewater produced from Wastewater Treatment Plant at Yangon Distillery Plant, Hmawbi Township in June 2021. After six months, on 23 December 2021, we successfully harvested the fishes from the pond and donated the fishes to the surrounding villages of Lake Poke, Lower and Upper Thae Kone, and Kwin Lake Poke in the communities nearby Hmawbi Factory. We invited the town elders and villagers around Hmawbi Factory to have an observatory visit to show them the treated wastewater can successfully breed fish and the growth rate of fish is higher. The average harvest of Pangush fish (Nga Tan) is between 1.6 kgs to 2.5 kgs. We also gave away the harvested fishes to fishpond helpers, contractors, and employees from the factory of Grand Royal Group International.
