The fishing season of South China Sea started again on August 16 after this summer's three-and-a-half-month fishing ban.

The annual summer fishing ban began on May 1 in China's major seas in the north, east, and south to preserve the marine fishery. The summer marine fishing ban involves more than 100,000 fishing ships and nearly one million fishermen nationwide.

The fishing ban covers the Bohai Sea, the Yellow Sea, the East China Sea, and the waters north of 12 degrees north latitude in the South China Sea. China first imposed the annual fishing ban in the South China Sea in 1999.

The summer fishing ban is part of China's efforts to promote sustainable marine fishery development and improve marine ecology.
