China loves fish. However, due to lack of management they have decimated many of their wild populations. Governmental policies in China have largely neglected environmental issues. Many dams have been built, waters polluted and/or fished out. As a result fisherman now have to focus there efforts in international waters.
China consumes four times as much fish as America does. Therefore they have had to innovate to successfully acquire enough fish for their growing population. This innovation has largely been in the way of fish farming. As many as 14 million people are now employed in aquaculture. For the Chinese, fish is an important staple but without a new push to protect their remaining wild species, even fish farming may not be able to keep up with demand.
