Cambodian company dips into marine fish farming on pair of P Sihanouk islands by Nov Sivutha January 13,2022   |  Source: The Phnom Penh Post

Jin Yu Tang (Cambodia) Fishery Co Ltd plans to splash out an unspecified amount on “marine fish aquaculture in submerged cages”, on Preah Sihanouk province’s Koh Dek Koul and Koh Thas islands, according to Minister of Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries Veng Sakhon on January 11.

The minister wrote in a Facebook post that he had discussed the project – set to cover a surface area of 1,984ha in Phase I – at the ministry earlier that day with a company representative, whom he identified only as “Ms Jessica”.

Sakhon said the undertaking would be invaluable for the development of the Cambodian fisheries sector: creating jobs for locals, increasing the number of fish at sea, and shoring up marine aquaculture production to meet local demand.

The minister said he had directed Jin Yu Tang – with a name meaning “enter the jade hall” – to submit an environmental and social impact assessment (ESIA) report and supporting documents for the project to the ministry.

However, the company must first get the nod from the Council for the Development of Cambodia (CDC) before it can sign an agreement with the ministry, and set the project in motion, he pointed out.
