[Commentary] On June 6, when it was "National Fish Day", 210,000 yellow-fin snapper, black snapper, Chinese horseshoe crab seedlings and 4 rescued green turtles were rescued in Xiamen Xiatanwei Coastal Wetland Park Release into water.

  [Commentary] On the same day, Xiamen Ocean Development Bureau organized a proliferation and release activity. Nearly one hundred volunteers relayed the fry and reversed it slowly to the deflector, so as to avoid damage to the fry during the release process and ensure the survival rate. Many elementary school students and parents actively participated in the practice of protecting the marine ecology.

  We are now also for natural balance, so we only participated in this activity, and I feel this activity is also very meaningful.

  Water is the basis for our survival. I think it is very important to protect the marine environment, especially if we are children growing up by the sea, we should have a clearer understanding of the ocean.

  【Explanation】Since 2003, Xiamen has carried out breeding and release activities, and a total of 4.6 billion seedlings have been released. In 2015, in order to improve the ecological environment of Xiamen and Jinhai, Xiamen and Kinmen jointly launched a cross-strait joint proliferation and release activity. This year, due to the impact of the new coronary pneumonia epidemic, the two sides chose to "never meet" to synchronously release fish.

  On the Golden Gate side, this year they mainly put yellowfin snapper and distant sea crab, as well as four-finger threadfin. In the past, we used to release together every year. Because of the special circumstances this year, we have released each other on our own shores this year. We have not gone to the sea. Before, we used to release together at sea.

  [Explanation] Chen Guobin said that after years of joint proliferation and release activities, the Xiamen Ocean Development Bureau and the Jinmen County Fisheries Research Institute have established a cooperation mechanism for the conservation of fishery resources on both sides of the Xiamen and Jinan.

  Now we are to enrich the original (fish enrichment) through proliferation and release. These several (proliferation and release) species are all original species, so we have restored their resources. On the one hand, the catch is on the side. The harvest will also increase. On the other hand, the entire ecosystem of our marine environment will also restore it.

  【Explanation】It is reported that the Xiatanwei Binhai Wetland Park, which hosts proliferation and release activities, is the first mangrove forest theme in Xiamen City and the largest artificial mangrove ecological wetland park in Fujian Province. The mangrove forest has the protection and maintenance of marine life. Diversity, improve the water quality in the bay area and enhance the ecological environment of islands in coastal waters.
