 Why does the forbidden Yangtze saury sell openly? It costs 1680 yuan for more than three or two pieces.


The hotel sells more than 1,680 yuan for one or two Yangtze saury, which is banned as a sales stunt.

Reporters recently interviewed found that although the Yangtze River knife fishing ban, but the sale of many restaurants. In an upscale restaurant in downtown Shanghai, there is a authentic knife fish billboard at the door. The restaurant manager told reporters that the price of knife fish was 1680 yuan a day. At present, the price has fallen, and 2680 yuan was sold the day before. The shop sells saury between 32 and 32 halves each.

The reporter inquired about the origin of saury. Because of the ban on fishing, it is very sensitive to sell knife fish. The manager of the restaurant said vaguely, Fishermen are poaching, once they are caught in our shop, they dont have to open it.

According to the Shanghai Fisheries Administration, fishing is strictly prohibited in the Yangtze River waters west of the Yangtze River Fisheries Management Line (122 degrees east longitude). However, in the sea area east of the management line, as long as the fishing boats with complete documents can still operate legally. That is to say, the Yangtze River cuttlefish is prohibited, while the East China Sea cuttlefish can be caught. Because of the delicious meat and the prohibition of fishing, the price of the former is much higher.

In another restaurant in Shanghai, the entrance reads Yangtze River Saury is on the market. The shop assistant said that the knife must be a river knife and someone always fished it secretly.

Reporters came to the Oriental Fisheries Center, a large-scale fishery market in Shanghai. Many shops displayed the sign of Yangtze River Saury. The price of more than three or two cuttlefish ranges from 1300 yuan to 3000 yuan per catty. Many shopkeepers said that all the saury were produced in the Yangtze River Basin, because the supply was scarce, they bought every day, and they were priced according to their production. The order needs to be booked in advance and shipped on the same day.

When reporters said that this year, the Yangtze River knife has been banned, so that the sale of suspected illegal, a shop frankly said that if someone came to investigate, they would say that these knifes are from the sea, rather than river knife, to avoid punishment.

Wu Changshan, secretary-general of the Shanghai Fisheries Industry Association, said that there are now sea knives in the market as river knives, but there are also fishermen who take risks and poach on the Yangtze River. These prohibited sources of goods flow to the dining table after price increases.

Illegal fishing across provinces by Sanwu vessels

Reporters recently came to a fishing port in the Yangtze River waters. At the junction near the barge point, there is the word knife fish on the village house. A fisherman said that the previous few days here was still very busy, these two days were closely checked, dare not trade, a lot of cold. When the reporter said he wanted to buy fish, the fisherman said, I dare not sell it to the raw face.

Some villagers told reporters that there are both sea knives and river knives sold here, which attracted a large number of local and even foreign fishmongers to purchase. Fishing is not easy to find, and trading usually takes place late at night.

In order to combat illegal fishing, the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Affairs of the Yangtze River Basin Fisheries Administration and Supervision Office recently organized a joint law enforcement action. Reporters followed the law enforcement team to patrol the Yangtze River waters. Small fishing boats still fished illegally on the water surface. Five boats were captured in two days.

In a fishing boat detained by law enforcement officers, there are other kinds of forbidden fishing besides knife fish, eel fry and so on. Geographical location shows that the work site is located in Shanghai section of Yangtze River waters. After investigation, the vessel does not have vessel inspection, fishing vessel inspection and fishing license. It belongs to the three-nothing vessel, and the parties are not Shanghai fishermen.

Industry insiders told reporters that these illegal fishermen are mostly cross-provincial crimes. After casting nets on the river surface, they hide in small boats or rental houses on shore, and have formed a black industrial chain of production, pricing, sorting and sales.

Reporters learned from the Shanghai Agricultural Commission that this year, 17 cases of illegal fishing in the Yangtze River waters have been investigated and punished by the Shanghai Fisheries Administration, 1273 cases of confiscation of deep-water nets, 4451 floats have been cleared, and 2 cases have been transferred to the public security organs for criminal responsibility in accordance with the law.

Overfishing and food damage species and even the ecosystem of the Yangtze River

Since 2003, China has imposed a comprehensive spring fishing ban on the Yangtze River, implemented special monitoring and management of the Yangtze River saury and other fishing vessels, strictly controlled the number of fishing vessels, mesh specifications and operation time, and effectively reduced the fishing intensity. However, the situation over the years shows that the recovery of saury resources in the Yangtze River is not ideal, and the current situation is still worrying.

Zhong Junsheng, a professor at Shanghai Ocean University, said that illegal fishing and environmental pollution were the main reasons for the decline of fish stocks such as saury in the Yangtze River. Especially, some illegal fishermen ignore the sustainable development of fishery resources, in order to catch eel fry and ignore the growth law of the Yangtze River saury, the setting of eel fry nets in the Yangtze River has blocked the growth and migration of the Yangtze River saury, often wiping out the infant saury, and must be firmly banned.

According to the latest deployment of the State Council, by 2020, the key waters in the Yangtze River Basin will be banned for many years. At the end of 2018, the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Affairs also issued a circular stating that since February 1, 2019, the issuance of special fishing licenses for Scorpion (Yangtze River Saury), anchovy (anchovy) and Eriocheir sinensis (river crab) will be stopped, and the productive fishing of these three natural resources will be prohibited.

Industry insiders told reporters that at the mouth of the Yangtze River, fishermen set nets in water with bamboo poles, anchors and so on, and that fishing boats only need to take the catch for a period of time. Governance actions are often just cleaning up nets, which makes it difficult to deal with ships and people on site. Tang Yi, Dean of the School of Marine Culture and Law of Shanghai Ocean University, suggested that for illegal fishing, departments should coordinate with regional cooperation, strengthen the control of land-based sources, attack illegal vessels, personnel involved and associated personnel of relevant interest chains, and not just stay on the surface of the water for supervision and enforcement. Zhao Yimin, deputy director of Jiangban, Minister of Agriculture and Rural Areas, said: Overfishing and eating have destroyed the saury species and even the ecosystem of the Yangtze River. For the sustainable development of the ecological environment of the Yangtze River, we should say no to the sale and consumption of Yangtze saury.
