Starting from noon of August 16, the 19th seasonal fishing moratorium officially ends in South China Sea, welcoming a new fishing season. Hundreds of thousands of fishermen restart fishing in South China Sea.
Cut-in: What is fishing moratorium?
This year’s seasonal fishing moratorium began from May 1 to Aug. 16 in the South China Sea. The 3.5-month-long fishing moratorium is the longest-ever since the fishing bans in the South China Sea began in 1999. No fishing is allowed in parts of the sea under China’s jurisdiction except by single-layer gill nets or other approved methods, including conventional angling. Although they have reduced the income of some fishermen, bans protect fisheries and ensure the industry’s sustainability.
Back to business: This year’s fishing moratorium has come to an end, it means a wide variety of fresh seafood from the South China Sea has been shipped to the market. Aren’t you excited?
Abalone, Geo-duck, shrimp, crab, clam, fish, lobster, mantis shrimp, oyster, horn snail, mussel, cuttlefish, squid, octopus, scallop, cockle, crayfish, jumbo shrimp, razor-shell, tuna, salmon ...
