Hainan to build aquaculture science research base in Zhongsha Islands
Hainan is planning to build an aquaculture science research facility in the Zhongsha Islands in order to protect the ocean’s ecosystem in Sansha City.
Being the first fishery resources research project approved by Sansha City, the base will be located in the Manbu Ansha Area, a submerged shoal in the Zhongsha Islands.
The base has already been enhancing the local waters’ fish resources. A variety of fish, shellfish and algae seeds have been deposited into the sea there.
Experts pointed out that it is of great significance that the pilot scheme to enhance algae breeding is being conducted in regional waters, which will not only increase the number of marine species but also protect the economic algae resources due to the special marine advantages at the Zhongsha Islands.
