The Yangtze River swordfish will be completely banned
Jan 08, 2019

According to the Voice of China Rural "Three Rural China", recently, the website of the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Affairs announced the "Adjustment Plan for Special Fishing Management in the Yangtze River Basin (Draft for Comment)". The "Proposal" proposed to cancel the special fishing licenses including the Yangtze River swordfish and river crabs, and stop issuing special fishing licenses. This means that these varieties of Yangtze River aquatic products will enter a comprehensive ban period.

According to the statistics of the Freshwater Fisheries Research Center of the Chinese Academy of Fishery Sciences, the production of Yangtze River swordfish along the Yangtze River Basin in 1973 was 3,750 tons, and in 2011 it was 12 tons. The data has proved that the reduction in the number of Yangtze River swordfish is an indisputable fact. Anhui Hefei fisherman Wu master was interviewed in March

The Yangtze River swordfish cannot be cultured artificially. The state has always imposed strict regulations on the fishing of the Yangtze River swordfish. Since 2002, the state has begun to implement protective limited arrests. The fishing qualifications are privileged, the fishing time is specific, and the nets of the fish are also required. Yang Jingfeng, head of the Aquatic Bureau of Guizhou Chizhou District, said that only eight farmers in the area have the qualification to fish.

As early as the beginning of the year, Wu Chunnian, deputy director of the Fisheries Bureau of Chizhou City, Anhui Province predicted that the Yangtze River swordfish is likely to be completely banned. Although the publicity of the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Affairs was a draft for comments, it has attracted attention among fishermen. Wang Shifu, a fisherman from Chizhou, Anhui Province, said that he hopes that the policy can be clearly defined as soon as possible and that he is prepared. He also hopes that once the policy is implemented, the relevant departments can give him fishermen such subsidies and help to complete the transformation and guarantee their lives.
