Summer fishing ban from June 1


A COMPREHENSIVE summer fishing ban will begin on June 1, closing several key marine areas to trawlers for up to three months.  

The ban by the Agriculture Ministry will affect 118,000 boats – 46,000 more than in 1995 when China first started the ban, China Daily said yesterday.  

This year the ban affects areas of the East China Sea, Yellow Sea, Bohai Sea and South China Sea.  

The June-September ban is aimed at protecting fish stocks in coastal waters, covering the major breeding season of many species. – People’s Daily
