Ningde 1, China's largest deep-sea semi-submersible fish farming platform, was towed out to sea on Tuesday, heading towards the designated farming waters in Xiapu of Ningde, Fujian province.

This is the first semi-submersible full-frame deep-sea fish farming platform in the country to be certified by the China Classification Society (CCS).

With a total length of 120 meters, a width of 56 meters and a height of 12.5 meters, it can accommodate 65,000 cubic meters of water. It boasts features such as adjustable depth, typhoon resistance, red tide avoidance and intelligent fish farming.

The platform will be used to farm large yellow croakers in the deep-sea and is expected to achieve an annual production value of over 100 million yuan ($13.76 million).
