• Four Major Cultivated Fishes
    The technological breakthrough of four major fishes breeding made by Prof. ZHONG ling’s group from Pearl River Fishery Research Institute of CAFS in 1958 symbolized a milestone in Chinese fishery history and the time when fish fries or seeds had to be collected from the wild has gone. Since then, freshwater aquaculture has rapidly developed in China.

    Prevention and Treatment of Haemorrhagic Disease of Grass Carp

    The Grass Carp ( Ctenopharyngodon idellus) Hemorrhage Virus (GCHV) was isolated and identified, on the basis of which the anti-viral vaccine was made. It was a breakthrough in fish viral immune disease prevention that greatly enriched and developed the pathological study of fish diseases.

    Jian Variety Common Carp Culture Technology and Its Extension

    A new variety of carp -- Jian Carp have been developed, which has features of fast-growing, build long, succulent and high feed conversion rate. Now the aquaculture production of Jian carp makes up more than 50% of the total.

    Sturgeon Stocking

    On the basis of the success of Chinese Sturgeon (Acipenser sinensis) breeding which was done by the experts from Yangtze River Fisheries Research Institute (YRFRI), from the beginning of the 1980s, the mass release of Chinese Sturgeons to the Yangtze River was carried out and the amount with various sizes has so far accumulated to 2 million. A breeding base of wild aquatic animals was also set up in YRFRI for domestication, breeding and rescue of this species.
