844 - 09/12 - Increased Fishery Farm Claims - Lanshan - Shandong - China

Sub-marine fish farm installations are becoming more common in the waters off the Chinese coast.  The large fishing nets in these farms are expensive and pose a significant risk to marine traffic in the area.

A recent notice from the Club's Chinese correspondents has informed us of the intention of the Chinese government to approve the expansion of fish farms in the navigable waters close to the Chinese port of Lanshan.
