Figures from Ministry of Agriculture show that China's aquatic products output will reach 48.9 million tons for 2008 and aquatic exports have increased by 9.8 percent to 7.65 billion USD in the first three quarters of the year.

Freshwater aquaculture contributes the most to the output. By the end of October, the price hike had driven the freshwater aquatic output up by 7.3 percent year-on-year to 17.4 million tons.

The Agriculture Ministry has adopted the policy of adjusting the fishery structure and putting fishing under strict control. By 2007, 69 percent of aquatic products were from aquaculture instead of fishing. The conservation of aquatic lives and water pollution prevention have thus improved.

A law enforcement campaign was also launched this year on the safety of aquatic products. The test of pesticide residue has shown better results.
