Port of Shipu has 600-year tradition of harvesting East China Sea

After a three-and-a-half-month moratorium on fishing, more than 1,000 fishing boats sailed from the port of Shipu in Xiangshan county, Zhejiang province on Sept 16 at the start of a new fishing season.

For locals in Xiangshan, it was a big day worthy of celebration and thousands of people gathered at the port to see the fishing boats leave. In the evening, the county held a large meal for local residents and tourists to enjoy the first catch of the new fishing season.
