Ministry of Agriculture Cites Concerns over Poor Fish Quality and Overfishing

People’s Daily recently published an article about a report from the Ministry of Agriculture. The report stated that, due to poor fish quality and the issue of overfishing, fish stock has been continually declining. It recommended actions that must be taken to improve the situation. The article stated that overexploitation in the Yangtze River has resulted in fish stock being below the acceptable level and that many types of fish face extinction. The same situation is happening in the East China Sea where fishing production continues to decline. Some regions do not even have fish stock anymore. The Ministry called for actions to be taken to protect the environment and the ecosystem.
