January -September

January - August

This year, the global financial crisis has had its impacts on the emerging markets but imports into Malaysia increased , indicating strong domestic demand


Now a days , it is rather difficult to draw a clear line between low , medium and high value species .

Marine fin fish such as groupers, sea bass , snappers , abalone , sea cucumber are the higher value aquaculture products with growing demand

With a different name ‘Siakap’ (Asian seabass) has a better image . When marketed as “barramundi” , it sells well at a higher price in Asian and western markets .

soft-shell crab farming is taking over many brackish water shrimp ponds in the region due to better market opportunities.

Imports of high value seafood continues to rise in Asia .

Regional import and domestic markets for live food fish and crustaceans are expanding
  • While China is the growing outlet for live marine fishery products, freshwater species are gaining popularity in other markets.
  • Pink tilapia has replaced wild red snapper in many seafood restaurants since 1997 economic recession
  • Restaurant demand for live freshwater prawn has also increased, replacing black tiger shrimp
