Zhanjiang Guolian Aquatic Products Co Ltd saw a year-on-year increase of 3.87 percent in its output value in the first half of this year to 2.11 billion yuan ($308.23 million), due to its emphasis on both domestic and international markets.
Founded in 2001, the enterprise is currently the largest aquatic products and food enterprise in China, with full industrial chains of prawns, tilapia, crayfish, and deep sea cage aquaculture. It has developed into a transnational enterprise integrating growing seedlings, breeding aquatics, producing aquatic feed, aquaculture research, as well as food processing and trade.
