• The incredible floating cities in China
Fujian Province of China, on the coast there are huge floating cities that are fishing villages and consist of a number of dilapidated wooden houses and huts, swimming far out at sea, covering almost the entire bay. Under the houses right in the water network installed, Cages for catching and breeding all sorts of water fowl: crab, lobster, scallops, carp, and even seaweed.
According to the statistics of China's aquaculture is currently the largest in the world. China has grown every year and catch more than 32 million tons of seafood a year. China accounts for two-thirds of total world production.
Experts say that aquaculture has developed steadily in China almost 25 years ago, when it was put on an industrial basis.
Dr. Sun Tao of Beijing University explains: "China has a very long history of fisheries off the coast and in estuaries, but really, the rapid development of industrial fishing began in the 1990s"
Industry - also known as mariculture, is now so great, she gave birth to their tourism industry
Dr. Sun Tao said: "Farmers tend to live on the water in a floating house."
Each year, there are only three months, during which there is a ban on catching the fish, to give fish stocks a chance to breed and recover.

Researcher, Institute of Oceanology, Chinese Zaolan says that the catch of fish and sea pollution have a much greater impact than a decade ago.
The fishermen are to blame for contamination. Environmental experts say the overfishing of fish, in particular, leads to a drastic reduction in fish populations.
When the stocks of large and valuable fish have been depleted, fishermen attention is drawn to the less valuable species. Currently, marine resources overexploited, fishing depletes and causes irreparable damage to the biodiversity of fish.
