The latest statistics released by Ningbo Customs show that in the first eight months of 2011 the total value of export of aquatic products amounted to 220 million US dollars, increased by 51.5% over the same period of last year. With the ending of the moratorium, the exports of aquatic products from the Ningbo port are sure to rise further.

Among the aquatic products exported, the live eel is the most popular with foreign customers in the first eight months. The total export value of live eel added up to 41.92 million US dollars, up by 22.7% over the same period of last year. Taking into consideration the fact that the export of aquatic products calls for a high speed of customs clearance, Ningbo Customs makes innovations to optimize its supervision mode and make efforts to facilitate the clearance. To be specific, the Customs adopts the "pre-declaring" mode for the bulk fresh seafood, and opens the "green passage" for fishing industry so that the fresh seafood can be promptly dealt with and pass the Customs as quickly as possible. In this way, the exporters may feel quite relieved.

In addition, by actively going into enterprises to do field research and to publicize relevant policies, Ningbo Customs endeavors to make suggestions to enterprises and help them solve the problems occurred in the process of transformation and upgrading.

It is said that for the first eight months this year, Ningbo's exports of aquatic products to Japan reached 89.77 million US dollars, up by 61.1% over the same period of last year.
