With the opening of the South China Sea fishing season on Monday after the end of the annual three-and-a-half-month fishing moratorium ended, fishing boats began carrying the bountiful harvest of the sea back to Sanya. Early the morning of August 19, they docked at Sanya’s Yazhou Fishing Port, and began carrying baskets of fresh seafood ashore.

As of four o'clock in the morning, baskets of fish, shrimp and crabs were being brought onto shore to sell to eager consumers. Damply glistening beneath the street lights, all sorts of delicacies immediately started being bought both by savvy residential customers and the city’s restaurants.
