China's fishermen per capita income exceeds 10,000 yuan in 2011


16:13, December 29, 2011

BEIJING, Dec. 29 (Xinhua) -- Chinese fishermen's average per capita net income rose 11.7 percent year-on-year to reach 10,012 yuan (1,589 U.S. dollars) in 2011, a senior agriculture official said Thursday.

This marked the first time that fishermen's average per capita income exceeded 10,000 yuan.

China's fishing industry achieved steady development this year. Aquatic product output and prices increased rapidly, and exports soared, Niu Dun, vice minister of agriculture, said at a national fisheries work conference.

The Ministry of Agriculture estimated that the country's aquatic product output will grow by 4.4 percent to 56.11 million tonnes this year, while aquatic product exports will rise to 18 billion U.S. dollars, representing a 30-percent increase year-on-year.

The fisheries sector saw its output total 47.73 million tonnes during the first 11 months, up 4.3 percent year-on-year. Exports rose 30.2 percent to hit 15.9 billion U.S. dollars during the same period.

Niu said the ministry is targeting an 8-percent rise in fishermen's average per capita net income and an output of 58 million tonnes in 2012.
