SEAFOODNEWS.COM [Shuichan News]  Translated by Amy Zhong Sept. 19, 2017

These boxes were sent to Nanning airport hurriedly, because these seed can only survive for eight hours in the boxes after the processing. Nanning customs has guided the export company in its clearance and hastened relevant procedures, which result in successful seed delivery from Guangxi to Laos.

SEAFOODNEWS.COM  [Shuichan News] Translated by Amy Zhong  Oct 6, 2016

China’s tilapia output is expected to be 1.77 million tons in 2017 and developing the domestic market is the solution to the urgent problem of this industry.

It is 1.77 million tons and 1.71 million tons respectively in 2017 and 2018. However, the market is saturated in America, the main importer, so China’s tilapia industry needs to turn to the domestic market for its further development, said Cui He, the vice president for CAPPMA during the GOAL conference 2016....

As Global Production Surges, China Loses Market Share, Pricing Power on Tilapia

SEAFOODNEWS.COM  [Shuichan news] Translated by Amy Zhong  December 8, 2016

China's tilapia production will be flat in 2016, at around 1.65 million tons, while global output will rise to 5.5 million tons.  China's tilapia industry has become too dependent on exports, especially to the US and Mexico, and would like to stimulate the internal market.  But strong competition from pangasius and also the ubiquitous grass carp, is making domestic sales difficult.  In this review of the tilapia industry, the authors point to more high quality, certifications, and breeding programs as necessary to move forward.
 
There have been many uncertainties in China’s tilapia industry development since 2015. The global economy is sluggish and China’s economic growth has slowed down. So it is key for the industry to improve its structure and have supply-side reform to deal with different challenges.
