【雲上嶺南】The largest abalone aquaculture basein Guangdong Province
When spring arrives, everything comes back to life, and the fields are filled with the seeds of hope. At the Huashen Aquaculture Base of Huilai County, we have recently seen that black aquaculture boards are neatly distributed in the aquaculture pool, where seawater is continuously flowing into. Abalone fry that do not like light are creeping slowly under the boards.
Picking up the boards, we can see that emerald-green abalone fry have grown to 2-3 centimeters. In recent years, through continuous improvement of technology, the base developed the latest abalone varieties, also known as "green abalone". Compared with the traditional abalone, this new variety has the advantages such as a high survival rate, high yield, and good quality. The mature abalone will be sold to Guangzhou, Shenzhen, and other places across the country.
Huilai County's abalone aquaculture has a history of more than 30 years. The county has over 170 abalone farms and 1.28 million cubic meters of aquaculture water. It has an annual output of more than 2000 tons of mature abalone and 4 billion abalone fry, whose output value is about 1.5 billion yuan. This is the largest abalone production base in Guangdong Province. Its production accounts for 90% of the whole province.
