JD.com, Inc (Sanya) Fishing Festival held at Yazhou Port
The fish are jumping after a three-and-a-half-month summer fishing ban in the South China Sea gave them the time and environment to reproduce.
On August 16th, 2019, the 2019 JD South China Sea (Sanya) Fishing Festival was held to celebrate the end of the seasonal summer fishing ban at Sanya Yazhou Central Fishing Port.
The event was jointly hosted by the Sanya Municipal People’s Government and the JD.com, Inc.

He said that Sanya Yazhou Central Fishing Port is an important port integrating a range of functions including fishing, berthing, shipping, and storage. The Sanya Government and JD.com, Inc. will work together to jointly promote the port as an “intelligent fishing port” by utilizing JD’s block chain technology, online trading platforms, and upstream and downstream industrial chain resources.
