Sanya has seen a sharp decrease in pricing complaints over seafood, thanks in no small part to efforts by the local authorities to regulate the seafood market during the May Day holiday.

In the past two years, the local government has encouraged the owners of seafood restaurants in Sanya to increase their service level for tourists and operate their businesses without ripping off customers after a major seafood pricing incident came to light in Sanya during the 2012 Spring Festival Holiday and sparked outrage across the country.

Major seafood restaurants in Sanya now have installed a new pricing supervision system consisting of an electronic dish-ordering system, a price publication screen and a POS accounting system.

Similar measures also include setting price ceilings for seafood and mandating seafood sellers to mark prices clearly to ensure fairness.

In addition, more frequent inspections have also become common in order to ensure market order.
