 There are turtle experts on the list of wild animals to be fasted in Shenzhen: no one size fits all


Much attention has been paid to the black list and white list of wild animals and their products. Article 2 stipulates that wild animals protected by laws and regulations and other terrestrial wild animals and their products that grow and propagate naturally in the wild environment are forbidden to eat, and that terrestrial wild animals and their products that are artificially bred and raised are also forbidden to eat. In addition, fasting also includes non edible animals and their products for scientific research and experiment, pet feeding and other non edible purposes.

Article 3 stipulates that pigs, cattle, sheep, donkeys, rabbits, chickens, ducks, geese and pigeons, as well as other poultry and livestock and their products that Shenzhen municipal government decides can be eaten, and aquatic animals that are not prohibited from eating in accordance with laws and regulations can also be eaten. In addition, if the municipal government decides to temporarily prohibit the consumption of the animals and their products as mentioned in the preceding paragraph due to the need of epidemic prevention, the decision shall be implemented.

Along with the draft for comments, there is also a note on the draft for comments, which has a more specific explanation on the scope of prohibited animals. For wild animals such as tortoises, turtles, snakes, birds and insects, which are more concerned by the society, there is also a great risk of disease transmission, which can not guarantee the safety of eating. Therefore, it is necessary tou300a The draft excludes these animals from the range of edible animals.

In addition, because honey, birds nest, snow clam and other animal related derivatives have been widely accepted by the public and have relatively mature inspection and quarantine standards, the draft does not prohibit the consumption of honey, birds nest, snow clam and other animal derivatives.

What should I do if there is any discrepancy between the local fast list and the national fast list?

Experts: the national fasted species must be banned locally, and the list of local fasts can be stricter than that at the national level

For the controversial black list and white list in the draft, an expert from the Wildlife Research Institute of Beijing Forestry University said in an interview with surging news on February 27 that the places where the state fasts species must be forbidden, the state does not fast, and the local prohibition does not matter. But whether the local and national standards are different will cause the problem of reselling, it needs to be considered at the local level. If the standards of non fasting species in the national list are different in different provinces, it is necessary to consider them according to the situation, demand, culture and other factors of species resources, it is not impossible to achieve a nationwide chess game, but there will be a lack of local autonomy.

On February 24, the 16th meeting of the Standing Committee of the 13th National Peoples Congress passed the decision on banning illegal wildlife trade, eliminating the abuse of wild animals, and ensuring peoples life and health and safety (hereinafter referred to as the decision), stipulating the protection of wild animals Besides the wild animals that are forbidden to eat by law and other relevant laws, other land-based wild animals and the land-based wild animals that are artificially bred and raised also belong to the range of animals that are forbidden to eat.

According to the army, the local food white list violates the regulations if there are species prohibited from eating in the national decision, so the local fasting list can only be stricter than the national level.

Turtles are also blacklisted?

Expert: aquatic wildlife is not in the fasting range, so it is necessary to be cautious when it is listed in the fasting list

Bao Weidong, associate professor of Beijing Forestry University, has long been engaged in feline research. He told the surging news that domestic felines are all national or provincial key protected animals and are unlikely to be eaten. However, for other species, local researchers in relevant fields should be consulted whether they are listed in the black list or white list of eating when they issue relevant lists Opinions of managers and others.

In the draft for comments, wild animals such as tortoises, turtles, snakes, birds and insects, which are more concerned by the society, are also included in the list of fasting. According to Zhang Li, Professor of Beijing Normal University, from the perspective of the decision, aquatic wildlife is not included in the fasting range, but turtle is a special case in Shenzhen.

Turtle is the common name of Chinese soft shelled turtle, which belongs to typical aquatic animals. Zhang Li believes that there is a large scale and reliable technology for turtle breeding, and fasting will directly affect the corresponding aquatic industry.

In addition, in the draft for comments, the oviduct of the snow clam, the Chinese forest frog, is listed as edible white list. Zhang Li believes that the so-called domestication and reproduction at present are mostly under the banner of domestication and reproduction, and a large number of forest frogs that spawn in the wild are caught to obtain food materials. He thinks that the snow clam should be fasted. In the same way, birds nest, which is made by mixing the saliva of some species in Southeast Asia with other substances, has an impact on the reproduction of wild animals in the process of collection, and is not conducive to the species protection of swifts and swifts.
