On Wednesday, China's Ministry of Agriculture, the State Oceanic Administration and Chinese Navy began a three-day marine rescue joint maneuver on sea, just off of Sanya, Hainan province.
The exercise, which ends Friday, includes the application of high-tech means such as mobile terminal positioning in maritime rescues, and the improvement of coordination, command and emergency reactions for all rescue departments.
The exercise held by the China Marine Rescue Center involves five ships and one helicopter.
There are nearly 20,000 fishing boats on the South China Sea, and 40 percent of them are Deep-sea fishing vessels. Accidents involving fishermen and boats frequently occur because of bad weather.
