Qin Ling, Secretary of the Yongxiu county Party committee, delivered a welcome speech and introduced the current situation of the crawfish industry in Yongxiu county to the audience attending the meeting and watching the live broadcast of Xinhuanet. He introduced that Yongxiu county has a good ecological environment suitable for crayfish growth, and has a good foundation for building”Yongxiu ecological crayfish”. Led by the rice shrimp industry, the county promotes the deep integration of rural primary, secondary and tertiary industries, and strives to build a 10 billion level crawfish characteristic industrial cluster. Promote the ecological cycle co cultivation mode of”rice and shrimp continuous cropping” to achieve a win-win situation in fish and grain; Continue to open up a new way of”combination of agriculture and tourism”; Build an industrial base of”China rice and shrimp village”, build the largest crayfish trading market in northern Jiangxi, and form a rice and shrimp industry chain integrating breeding, sales, processing and catering. At present, the county has two rice and shrimp breeding bases of more than 10000 mu, and more than 10 rice and shrimp breeding bases of more than 1000 mu, with a total area of more than 120000 mu; The annual output of crayfish in the county exceeded 20000 tons, and the primary output value reached more than 600million yuan.
Lishumin, a first-class inspector of the fisheries and fisheries administration of the Ministry of agriculture and rural areas, reviewed the gratifying achievements of the crayfish industry in his speech. In 2021, the total output value of China’s crayfish industry was 422.195 billion yuan, an increase of 22.43%year-on-year. Among them, the output value of crayfish breeding industry is 82.344 billion yuan; The output value of the secondary industry dominated by processing industry is 36.851 billion yuan; The output value of the tertiary industry, mainly catering, is 303 billion yuan. The crayfish industry has played an important role in ensuring the stable supply of vegetable basket products and promoting fishery efficiency and increasing the income of fishermen. At the same time, Li Shumin pointed out that while the crayfish industry is developing rapidly, the industry is also facing problems such as the urgent need to innovate the planting and breeding mode, the relatively backward development of the seed industry, the prominent problems of the processing industry, and the imperfect whole industry chain system in some regions. He hoped that the experts, scholars and colleagues in the industry attending the meeting would adhere to the problem orientation and goal orientation, discuss the overall plan of industrial development, and walk out of a whole industry chain integration The road to prosperity of crayfish industry with high quality and green development.
In his speech, the Secretary of the Party group of the Department of agriculture and rural affairs of Jiangxi Province and the Secretary of the Department of Changjiang Zhiying introduced the current situation of the crayfish industry in Jiangxi Province. Up to now, the breeding area of crayfish in Jiangxi Province is 2.49 million mu, the breeding output is 250000 tons, the primary output value is 9 billion, and the comprehensive output value is 30 billion. The industrial development ranks first in the country. The technological model is constantly maturing, adhering to the basic principle of”not competing with people for food, not competing with food for land”; The industrial chain continues to extend. The province has 200 large-scale crayfish breeding bases, 20 processing enterprises of various kinds of crayfish, with an annual processing capacity of 100000 tons, and more than 20 comprehensive trading platforms have been built in advantageous production areas. In 2021, the annual new output value of the whole industrial chain of crayfish will reach more than 2billion yuan; The brand effect is constantly prominent. There are more than 210 Poyang Lake brand crayfish stores in the province, marketing more than 30000 tons of crayfish and its products every year.
Jiang wending, deputy secretary of the CPC Jiujiang Municipal Committee, said in his speech that Jiujiang was the first city along the river to open to the outside world and the only port city in Jiangxi province that connects the river and the sea. Jiujiang has a water area of 5million mu. The 152 km long river coastline and 2/3 of the water area of Poyang Lake in the province are all in Jiujiang. The breeding area of the whole city is 1.5 million mu, and there are 9 lakes above 10000 mu. Fishery resources are very rich. In terms of fishery development, Jiujiang focuses on the goal of”building a strong modern fishery city and building a famous city of shrimp and crab industry”. Taking the expansion and strengthening of the”Poyang Lake shrimp and crab” industry as the cut-off point, Jiujiang vigorously promotes new technologies and new models, develops new business entities, supports the expansion of leading enterprises, and forms advantageous industrial belts and industrial clusters such as Poyang Lake shrimp and crab, Pengze crucian carp, etc. along the river and around the lake. This year, the lobster breeding area in the city reached 500000 mu, including 21 breeding bases above 1000 mu. The annual output is expected to be 90000 tons, with an output value of more than 2.7 billion yuan, accounting for 24.5%of the total output value of fisheries.
Han Gang, vice president of the Chinese Academy of Fishery Sciences, said in his speech that the rapid development of the crayfish industry cannot be separated from the strong support of industrial technology. In view of the bottleneck problem in the development of crayfish industry, many fishing related scientific research institutions, universities, enterprises and so on have carried out scientific and technological research. The Chinese Academy of Fishery Sciences has also carried out systematic research on the innovation of crayfish breeding mode, variety breeding, disease prevention and control, quality and safety control, and has made a series of scientific research progress and obtained a number of achievements in crayfish strain construction and variety breeding, rice and shrimp comprehensive breeding mode, feed nutrition and quality control, quality identification and grading, processing, storage and preservation.
Yu Xiujuan, deputy head of the China Fisheries Society at the National Aquatic Technology Promotion Station, said in her speech that the China Fisheries Society at the National Aquatic Technology Promotion Station, as a national technical support and service organization, has long paid attention to giving full play to the advantages of the promotion system and the society system, and actively promoted the rapid and healthy development of the rice and fishery comprehensive planting and breeding industry, including the crayfish industry, in the integration of rice and shrimp planting and breeding technology A lot of work has been carried out in the aspects of experiment, demonstration, popularization and application, the construction of technical standard system for comprehensive planting and breeding of rice and fishery, and the development, exchange, publicity and promotion of crayfish industry.
