Dr Nyan Taw, International Shrimp
Senior Advisor, MFF (Myanmar Fisheries Federation)/ ADB Consultant, FITES (Fisheries Technology & Services Centre of Vietnam)
In 1988, he joined the FAO of UN and served at FAO/UNDP/UNHCR fisheries and aquaculture projects
in Indonesia, Vietnam and the Philippines, culminating the position of Chief Technical Advisor (CTA) until early 1995. From 1995, he accumulated valuable commercial experience by joining the private commercial sector. He served as Senior Vice President responsible
for R&D and commercial production at one of the largest integrated shrimp farms (Dipasena – over 20,000 ponds) in Indonesia. He served as Vice President in CPB, CP Indonesia, large integrated shrimp farm (3,700 intensive culture ponds where he initiated
biofloc technology to commercial scale. He joined Blue Archipelago Berhad as Senior Technical Advisor/GM in August 2009 to develop a biosecure modular intensive shrimp farm project (iSHARP) at 1,000 hectares land. From September 2013, he transferred the project’s
full-time responsibility and at present served as technical consultant until 2015
Dr. Nyan has provided consultancy for shrimp farming companies in Central (Guatemala, Honduras, Nicaragua & Belize) and South (Peru & Ecuador) American countries,
Middle East (Saudi Arabia and Kuwait) and Asia (China, Indonesia, India & Vietnam). He conducted Shrimp Biofloc Technology workshops for shrimp farmers, researchers and investors in Malaysia (BAB/UMT), Australia (Shrimp Farmers Association), India (NaCSA/MPEDA),
Saudi Arabia (FAO/SAS), Indonesia (IAS/MAI), Thailand (AIT) and Myanmar (CIHAEM/DoF).
Dr Nyan and Research Team has published a book entitled ‘Prawn Culture in Burma’ in 1984. He co-authored a chapter in the book by Yoram Avnimelech
on Biofloc Technology (2012 & 2014). Dr Nyan recently published a book on shrimp farming ‘Intensive shrimp farming systems in Asia: Commercial implementation of biosecure and biofloc systems to help control shrimp farming diseases’ (Taw, N.
1918, Scholars’ Press). Dr Nyan is a member of Biofloc Working group, Aquaculture Engineering Society, World Aquaculture Society.
His significant contribution is on intensive shrimp farming technology - in development of farm biosecurity,
biofloc technology and designing biosecure large modular farms.
